Get ready for summer 2021

Monday 7 - Friday 11 June | online

The English UK 'get ready for summer 2021' event is a free event taking place online throughout the week commencing Monday 7 June. The event will help summer course providers get their staff teams ready to deliver a summer like no other.

The event is free for English UK members and agents. Seminar sessions will start at 14:00 and be followed by a member only open space session where members can discuss the seminar topic and other related questions. 

We hope the 2021 summer season will see the return of significant numbers of international students to the UK, even if it is just for the latter half of the summer, and there is much to do to prepare. The event will provide practical advice and input to help centres get prepared to deliver a safe and exceptional experience for their students.
