English Language Training at Work

Clear communication is essential to the success of every business and every employee

Delivered by Enhanced English Skills for Employment (EESE), the English at Work program:

  • brings customized language and intercultural training to your workplace with trained and experienced instructors;
  • provides access to English language training for working people who can’t attend community classes;
  • focuses on workplace communication and complements other workplace training;
  • is offered at all levels from beginner to advanced;
  • starts and stops at any time of the year to match work cycles; and
  • is typically offered in two-hour classes held twice a week near the end of the employee workday, with one hour on paid work time and one hour on employee personal time.

Instructors consult with managers about the course content and devise lessons that ensure your employees are working safely, productively, and with an increased ability to communicate with supervisors and co-workers. Topics include:

  • workplace safety
  • understanding instructions
  • communicating with co-workers
  • reading workplace documents
  • writing email or reports

The shared investment between business and government with the English at Work program results in excellent attendance and commitment.
