Eaquals is delighted to introduce an intensive two-day training opportunity for members on 17th-18th November in Malta. This revised format and specialised training is in response to member input and feedback.
Training for Excellence focuses on two strands: business/marketing and academic issues. The business and marketing strand deals with areas of interest and relevance to language institution owners, directors and managers. The academic strand deals with areas applicable to the daily work of language managers, DOSes, teacher trainers and teachers.
What does the Business & Marketing strand cover?
Within the business and marketing strand, participants are offered a choice between the areas of Coaching and Mentoring or Digital and Online Marketing for Business. See below for detailed outline of optional areas.
What does the Academic strand cover?
The academic strand offers participants the chance to focus on key areas that provide a constant challenge which are assessment and skills and competences for DoSes. See below for detailed outline of optional areas.
Will this be relevant to my context?
Participants will complete a survey before training takes place. This will act as a focused needs analysis within each chosen strand area and ensure that training is catering for their specific needs. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to bring their own material with them to the training event, thus enhancing relevance of the training for their own particular context.
Will I be able to continue and build on the training I receive?
In order to build on the training received, follow-up resources will be available in the members’ area of the website. There will also be the opportunity to interact via discussions around the training areas on the Eaquals members Blog.
