Boost your HR English!

Kursledare: Aidan Isherwood, The London School of English

This specialist English language course is designed for HR professionals working within large or small organisations. The course concentrates on developing the language skills required for presenting, describing and discussing various HR processes in English. The programme is flexible and is adapted to the needs of the individuals.

Objectives and Benefits 

This course programme is designed to meet the needs of HR staff, in any sector and at all levels, who need to use English to communicate both internally and externally. The emphasis will usually be on spoken English. In particular, it will:

  • increase fluency and confidence, thus helping participants communicate more effectively when using English in a professional context
  • develop a range of general professional communication skills, such as giving presentations, attending meetings and dealing with leadership and staff issues
  • activate and consolidate existing vocabulary and also provide new language input, placing particular emphasis on vocabulary and functional language used in HR services strategy and delivery
  • make participants more aware of individual areas of weakness so they can work at eliminating these, and help them develop strategies for future language learning
Course Content
  • The aims of the HR function – what does HR do, and why?
  • Sourcing, recruitment, selection and redeployment
  • Compensation and benefits
  • Competence development
  • Performance management
  • Working environment, health and safety
  • Employer-employee relations in Sweden: trade unions, LAS, MBL and collective agreements

The exact content will be adapted according to the composition of the group and focus on active usage of the language in presentations, meetings situations, discussions of relevant areas and social interactions.
