Experienced trainers

Our trainers are mature, qualified and above all experienced. Our methodologies are focused on getting the most out of people, facilitating collaboration between the trainer and the learner - and between individual learners. We are constantly exploring news ways of making our training more effective and relevant to the needs of our clients.

We take pride in our continued professional development and our trainers are regular attenders and speakers at industry conferences such as IATEFL (International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language) and The English UK Management and Teachers conferences. We are proud holders of the Excellence in Business English Teaching (EBET) Award, created by Business English UK (BEUK) to raise awareness of the high standard of specialist trainers in the UK.
