Course management team
Over the years, the directors of Business Language Training have built up an outstanding course management team. All of our course managers are graduates in modern languages, trained language teachers and have excellent administrative skills.
Every client is assigned a dedicated course manager. The course manager is responsible for all aspects of the client’s training. He or she will arrange the initial language assessment, set up the course, brief the selected language trainer and provide regular attendance, progress and financial reports to the client.
