Workplace Learning Trends: A new market for teachers

Rob Howard


It is no surprise to business English professionals, but the growing trend in ELT training has been encompassing technical, tactical, and power skills in the English language classroom. As 87% of global business is taking place in English, professionals need much more than intercultural competence and presentation skills as today`s worker must excel within their own Community of Practice.

He is a teacher, writer and trainer on Business English, Teacher Development, Entrepreneurship, and teaching online. He is Joint Coordinator of the IATEFL BESIG, Gallery Teachers Masterclass presenter, iTDi TOEFL course trainer, as well as co-founder of the Independent Authors & Publishers.
