Agent briefings & webinars

Education agents and counsellors play an essential role in helping students make the right study choices. We support agents through offering learning opportunities to help agents feel confident about promoting UK ELT courses.

Briefings and webinars for agents

Our UK ELT briefings for agents and partners aim to build market confidence. The briefings often target a specific source market or region, enabling the content to be tailored to address specific context, needs and challenges. 

They are designed to keep partners informed and updated about studying English in the UK and include the up-to-date travel guidance and other insights that enable partners to access the information they need to advise their students with confidence.
