Why Cambridge English?
Doing BEC Higher was a very enriching experience. It really helped me plan my MBA sessions in a better way than I used to do earlier. The students find Business English interesting and stimulating as it caters to their immediate needs. The syllabus is well-designed and well-executed. It certainly helps students hone their skills in the use of the English language and sensitizing them to the needs of work place.

The lack of effective communication skills has been the ruin of many relationships, personal and business. Being in a corporate world, Communication plays a vital role. BEC has boosted my level in all categories of communication and build tons of self-confidence.
BEC Exam has a standard of its own. BEC teaches you to listen carefully, understand, read, write and speak the Business English language. You start thinking aloud; learn lots of new terminologies used in Business and Corporate world. You start feeling more confident and competent when communicating with your counterparts in other offices outside India.

The TKT Course offers an international understanding and perception of learning and teaching. The content of the course has something for both experienced and new teachers.
The one thing that makes TKT a unique course for teachers is that it is learner centered and brings out the real essence of being a teacher. Not only academics but also beliefs, values and pastoral care which are quintessential to being a teacher are reinforced all over again. I am taking back a treasure trove of learning from the TKT Course.

As a trainer for the BEC Exams, I have noticed the marked improvements in the successful BEC candidates.
They are able to follow implied meanings while reading or listening to messages in English. Also, they can respond suitably, whether through written forms or orally.
BEC candidates use appropriate vocabulary and a variety of syntactic forms during their communication in English. Most important, they use English confidently at work, both in their workplace and during travel or business related socialising.
In short, BEC training enables better internal and external communication!

I have the privilege to be associated with Cambridge English Language Assessment, as a trainer and co-ordinator for BEC exams, in Sangli, Maharashtra since the last 3 years. BEC has successfully filled a void of polishing much needed communication skills students need, to bridge the gap when taking the step from a college into the corporate world and in converting theory into practice. Training students for BEC is an interesting process as the course content involves instruction to be conveyed in innovative ways. Students can relate to the BEC Program as it is practical and relevant and equips them with all the essential skills for the corporate world of today.

As an English language trainer, the Cambridge Business English Certificate (Preliminary) is the examination of first choice that I recommend to students, who want to study for a Business English qualification. This is because the Certificate is recognized globally, has high value at the workplace, comes with life-time validity and is affordable.
The Cambridge Business English course that leads up to the certification is a vibrant program that enables adult learners to gain a skill base/become proficient in reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in Business English at 3 levels of instruction - Preliminary, Vantage & Higher. The program is learner-centric and meets business communication needs comprehensively.
As a trainer, I have used the Cambridge BEC (Preliminary) program extensively and seen it transform lives of participants within educational institutions and at the workplace. I consider the Cambridge BEC program to be an essential life-skill instruction and the Certificate to be a pre-requisite for the workplace today.

NSS Hillspring is affiliated to the IB curriculum which endorses that all subject teachers are language teachers. Therefore, teachers of our school were introduced to the TKT course. While primary teachers decided to opt for the first three modules to hone their language skills; secondary teachers opted for TKT CLIL which delineates the role of language across the curriculum including maths and science. The teacher support workshops organized by CIE/ Cambridge English Language Assessment staff were particularly useful, it helped the teachers who have become learners after a long gap gain confidence and develop professionally.
