  6. 6. Group Tuition “balanced professional and informative. My t , eachers made sure that my course was relevant and I have learned a lot I att . ended all the workshops - very useful”. Executive Group Programme Executive Group Combination A. K., Partner, KPMG Finland Executive Group Programme: The Executive Group Programmes are comprised of participants with similar levels and needs. This means that each group is working towards the same overall learning objectives. A detailed Needs Analysis and a Language Assessment of each delegate before the start of the course ensure that the groups are not only homogenous but also share common learning objectives. We guarantee a maximum of 6 participants per group, although in practice the group size is often much smaller. This creates an intensive, highly productive learning environment. Executive Group Combination: The Executive Group Combination programme combines half-day individual tuition with half-day group tuition. The combination is particularly useful if you wish to participate in group activities such as meetings and negotiations but also have some very specific needs. You may need to improve your technical vocabulary relative to a particular industry or to prepare a specialised report for presentation to a client etc. In the individual part of your combination course, you will be able to work entirely on your own needs, optimising the time available to you. What makes the programmes effective? n We design and tailor our programmes according to the needs and requirements of the participants. This means that each programme is unique n We use case studies and business simulations which are relevant to the participants’ needs. You will therefore be able to apply what you learn in business situations n With participants from all over the world you are exposed to different accents, different approaches to business problems and different cultural backgrounds. This improves your ability to participate in business at an international level n Our trainers are professional, experienced and business-minded in their approach. Many have a business as well as a language training background. They have lived and worked in many different countries. They work with the participants to ensure that their needs are fully met and that they leave with the language skills needed to work more effectively n We continually monitor and review progress throughout the programme n We use the latest technology to support your learning – the internet, podcasts and authentic video clips all feature prominently in the programme. Participants take away personalised recordings of their work in areas such as pronunciation, discussions and presentations. They can review their work once they have returned home n At the end of each day, there is a selection of optional workshops which offer the chance to focus more on learning strategies (e.g. how to learn vocabulary, how to listen to English more effectively etc.) which enable participants to continue building on their skills after our training GROUP Page 06 Available in London and Stratford upon Avon Group Size Maximum 6 participants Times Monday to Friday 09:15 -18:00 including 2 working lunches per week Optional Workshops 17.00 -18.00 - in a variety of skill areas.
