What are our Executive Individual Coaching Courses?
This is a focussed and highly-individualised programme, based on a detailed needs analysis of the professional, linguistic and social needs of the participants.
The 1:1 course is specifically tailored to meet the needs and wants of the particular individual. A typical 1:1 course might run as follows: mornings concentrating on specific language issues and pertinent specialist vocational vocabulary.
Afternoons might focus on business functional language, for example presenting information, or teleconferencing. It may cover cultural awareness or socialising with clients outside of the professional area, it very much depends on what the client feels is most important for them. The day is tailored and is student centred to meet the specific needs of the individual student.
