English Course for Higher Management and Professionals

It's important to know English well, but to get your idea across in a professional environment, the way you communicate in English is what sets you apart from others. 


These course can be also funded through the Erasmus+ program. For more information contact your National Agency.

Course overview

“How do you say that in English?”
“What would be appropriate to say in this situation?”
“Will my peers understand me when I say that?”

Schools involved in international mobility need to use English while implementing the projects. Similarly, many organizations and companies have made the transition in recent years to using English as their official language.

Unfortunately, many school principals, administrators, and professionals are good at their work but lack the appropriate language skills in the workplace.

This course has been designed to help participants get their ideas across in a professional setup confidently in English.

Throughout the duration of the course, participants will be able to recognize language patterns, be acquainted with soft skills needed in the workplace, and use key phrases. All participants will be urged to use these ideas and phrases through a variety of structured exercises both independently and within a team.

The focus of this Erasmus Plus training course is to help enable all professionals, from school management to any company representative, to conduct their work proficiently in English.

By its end, participants will have received professional up-to-date language, which will allow them to practice their newly taught topics in real-time with trained teachers.

Methodology
With the aim to involve active participation and achieve the best learning experience, the course methodology is based on dynamic, innovative and creative methods of experiential learning.
It consists of:
Theoretical work - If you do not know what you are talking about, you will not be able to apply it. Nowadays, more and more emphasis is put on practical learning, yet theory is a necessity. You have to know the background of a subject to be able to pinpoint its challenges.
Practical work - Through practical workshops and interactive tasks you will gain personal experience that will help you understand and implement ideas in your own work.
Coaching - Each participant in the course will get the opportunity to receive direct feedback from our coaches. These individual consultations will result in being able to better position your skills in your respected organisation.

 
Each program starts on Monday morning and finishes on Friday evening with Sathurday being optional for enjoing cultural activities. Throughout the course, besides training, we will promote professional networking through a variety of social and cultural activities.
