Opportunity for member centres in the East of England to showcase their facilities
20 December 2014

English UK's Spring inward mission 2015 is for agents from Central and Western Asia and North Africa, and will visit English UK member centres in the East of England.

If your centre is based in counties such as Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex or Hertfordshire, then you are encouraged to register your interest in being a showcase centre as soon as possible.

The mission will take place between the 17 and 23 May 2015, and will bring up to 12 invited overseas agents to the UK enabling them to view first-hand the diverse range of accredited ELT on offer. For this inward mission the invitation to participate will go to agents from countries including, but not limited to, Algeria, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Libya, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.

What is a showcase?

Showcases give English UK members the opportunity to present their courses, facilities and services to agents. They may include presentations, sample lessons, a tour of the premises and surrounding areas or simply the chance for agents to chat from their own country.

It could also include a tour of the local area, as this helps the agents to experience some of the local culture and advise students on the benefits of a particular destination. Depending upon logistics, agents will spend anywhere between one and four hours at a centre for a showcase.

The cost of participating as a showcase host is £725 + VAT.

Selection of members to be showcase hosts

The response from our members determines the viability of the proposed mission as well as the geographical route that the inward mission will take.

If the number of centres wishing to take part is higher than can be accommodated, selection will be made by English UK on the basis of geographical practicality, diversity of participating members, and recent participation in English UK inward missions. Beyond these criteria, members will be selected on a first-come first-served basis.

Expression of interest

Please send an email expressing your interest in being a showcase host to Laura Underwood no later than 15 January 2015. After this date, Laura will get in touch with you to let you know if you've been selected to showcase your centre during the mission.
