Cambridge English Language Assessment has developed two webinars for BEC which will be hosted on the Cambridge English Teacher website on the 27th February and 13th March 2013.

Webinar 1: Success in Business English teaching

27 February 2013 at 15:00 GMT

If you were a training manager looking for a Business English trainer, what would you want?

To be attractive to customers a good Business English trainer needs to bring something more to the table than just a teaching certificate and experience. This webinar will look at some of these additional requirements for success in the Business English field and makes suggestions to help you polish your profile.

Webinar 2: The Business English teacher: BEC and beyond

13 March 2013 at 15:00 GMT

The Cambridge English BEC is a qualification that can enormously enrich a student both intellectually and materially. But to be successful, a teacher/trainer is required to find ways to keep students motivated over a long period of time.

The webinar will suggest a range of strategies for managing this requirement, not just for BEC but for any extensive Business course.
