Choose the business skills module that’s right for your learners
Our business skills modules can be broken down by skill, department and industry. Here are just a few examples of the courses we offer:
- Business correspondence
- Business negotiations
- Presentation delivery
- Telephone communication
- Customer support
- Project management
- Real Estate
Here’s how the program breaks down:
Every business skills program is custom to some extent. We start by grading learners at the beginning of the course using oral and written assessments and a needs analysis. Then we adapt our courses to meet the specific needs of individuals.
Learners meet with the same trainer throughout the course via our online, face-to-face virtual classroom, with trainers selected based on their relevant experience, skills, and training style.
Skill-based and industry-specific language training programs are available for individual learners or groups (up to four participants) with similar language proficiencies and shared goals.
We adapt multimedia training materials based on the Common European Framework (CEF) to meet the needs of your individual learners. Our in-house team of content developers ensures materials cover the latest trends in your industry with up-to-date vocabulary, including any company-specific terms, phrases, and business skills where required.
Business skills programs typically consist of 20 x 60-minute sessions for individual programs and 25 x 60-minute sessions for groups. Programs with 90-minute sessions are also available.
Learners can manage their own program commitments and reschedule sessions up to six hours in advance.
We provide chapter quizzes throughout the program with a final examination on completion of the course for those who require it.
A minimum prerequisite for these courses is A1 or B2 Common European Framework (CEF) level, depending on the topic.
