Bespoke programmes for organisations

These programmes are tailormade for teams needing to communicate in a specific context. Every field has its own register, including technical or commonly-used language and we can provide input on this as well as allowing for practice of common work-related scenarios where fast, accurate or agile communication is required.

Focus can be given to particular skills, such as report writing or effective emails, or functional areas such as dealing with a difficult customer or using language effectively to negotiate.

We work with the commissioning manager to ensure that courses meet organisational as well as individual needs.

We will help you build your team’s capacity in the A-Z of business, from Agriculture to Zoo Keeping.  We can deliver tuition online, at your company location or on campus at the Language Centre at UCC.
