English UK: combining the best of the past with the best of the future
Our inward missions bring overseas agents to the UK so that they can gain direct experience of English language provision here. Each inward mission highlights a specific UK region, and includes a workshop and at least six showcases. This autumn our inward mission is focussed on Central and East England.
Dinners with members from our special interest, regional or national groups brought more opportunities for the agents to meet with a wide range of UK-based language centres. English UK East hosted a dinner on Tuesday and centres from Central England were invited to join Friday's farewell dinner.
Often it is 'really experiencing' a destination that is key in highlighting why a location should be included in an agent's offering to their clients. And, for this trip, the British Council sponsored an afternoon in Stratford upon Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.
All the language centres the agents met are English UK members and therefore accredited by Accreditation UK. Find out more about our inward missions.
