Training calendar


In this difficult time for the ELT industry and international education community, we are doing our best to still provide for our members.

Where possible, we are moving English UK training that is essential to running your centre online. This is to ensure that when students are again travelling to the UK that we are prepared and up to the best standard possible. This includes our safeguarding, emergency response and crisis management and recruiting safely trainings.
If you are already booked on a training session, you will have been contacted directly and your booking will have been automatically moved to the online session. For all of our upcoming training, visit our training calendar.

To ensure the safety and wellbeing of our community and delegates, we are seeking alternatives to planned face-to-face conferences, including online delivery and postponement. We do not intend to deliver any face-to-face events before June 2020. read our full event statement +

Covid-19 webinars

We are running a programme of free webinars on all aspects of UK ELT provision, from HR to delivering teaching online, as well as regular general Q&A with the English UK senior team to support our members during the Covid-19 outbreak.
