Agent 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.

Upcoming webinars for agents

We have been running a series of UK ELT briefings for agents and partners to help rebuild market confidence. The briefings are market focused and designed to keep partners informed and updated about studying English in the UK and include the latest travel guidance and other insights that will enable partners to access the information they need to advise their students with confidence. 

Each briefing targets a specific source market or region, enabling the content to be tailored to address the market's specific context, needs and challenges.
