Powerful Communications for International Schools

Working in an international school can be a fascinating experience. The mix of cultures, languages and personalities makes every day different, and the opportunity to contribute to the growth of tomorrow’s adults is a rewarding one.

But these issues also bring challenges. Dealing with language and cultural barriers, demanding parents and busy academic staff can be difficult and, at times, stressful. Sometimes you need to communicate sensitive messages. Other times, you have to react to an emergency situation and make decisions fast.

This 2-day practical course helps International School professionals improve their confidence and communication skills, so they can be highly productive in their roles.

You will learn how to: 

  • Communicate complex messages clearly and concisely
  • Deal effectively with demanding parents and busy academic staff
  • Respond to complaints or difficult requests
  • Promote a positive image of your school that creates trust and interest
  • Engage prospective parents and school visitors
  • Communicate with people from a range of cultures and proficiency in English

Who should attend this course?

This course is ideal for school administration professionals, as well as those involved in sales and marketing. The programme is designed to appeal to both non-native and native English speakers.
