What’s the best thing about working for an international organisation? There’s always so much going on, so many opportunities to learn something new and to meet like-minded people – just like last week, when I had a chance to take part in a workshop for trainers of professional skills.
I won’t give you all the details, but here are my biggest takeaways:
- a lot of teacher training skills and techniques can be transferred to professional training
- that said, we should be careful not to call trainees ‘students’: the training room is not a classroom after all
- there are things happening outside traditional young learner and adult ELT that are just as exciting
And a traditional link: a website recommended by the course tutors. It’s a great resource for workplace training sessions, with a lot of activities that can also be used in Business English classes and ESP: games, puzzles and more games!
