GCSE English Enhancement Programme – Direct Delivery Pathway 5

GCSE English Enhancement Programme
Pathway 5 – Direct Delivery
This is a direct delivery pathway meaning that you can either:
a) Have the course in your college with one of our trainers – make a booking and work with us
to decide on dates. If you have more than 10 delegates then courses can be run in your
venue or shared with another institution.
b) Attend an open course (see dates below).
The training modules will not only improve your English Language skills and give you an
understanding of the skills the students need to succeed but also develop teaching approaches that
will motivate them and build confidence.
