Embedded English training offers significant learning and training advantages, in addition to cost benefits. As an Embedded trainer, we are present in your company for an agreed upon fixed period of time each week. What makes embedded training unique is that in addition to providing regular group and one to one training during this period, we are also on-call to support employees in any English language and communication needs they may have, such as:
- Ad hoc lessons to prepare employees for meetings, negotiations and presentations
- Support and feedback on upcoming presentation materials
- Proofreading of texts ranging from promotional material, web site texts and emails
- Basic translations
As an embedded trainer, we get to know your company intimately with the result that our support and training is more authentic and thus more useful for all employees. Being available outside of “standard” group and one to one training times, we can sit down with employees and discuss issues in depth, giving assistance where needed. This means real, relevant, practical knowledge reinforcement and transfer takes place.
We also aim to expand learning and training beyond those participants in the training room. This can take several forms such as:
- An informal “chat room” where anyone can come along and discuss current affairs
- Weekly reading comprehension exercises emailed out to employees that link to authentic English articles of interest to your company
And the cost benefits?
Firstly, as embedded training is most appropriate and effective over a time frame of six months or more, we offer a reduced rate in return for commitment to a longer term training schedule. Then there are the savings your company makes in having training take place not only in the training room, but also while employees are at their workplace, saving the company “downtime”. Lastly, we can save you the time and expense of contracting proofreaders for your presentations and texts.
For larger size organizations, embedded training is certainly a worthwhile option to consider.
