English Language Teaching, Training and Development: Courses for University Staff 

The University of Southampton is an established provider of courses for English teachers and other professionals who use English in an international academic context as a medium of education, as a means of international communication or as a means of disseminating/publishing research internationally. 

We specialise in working in partnership with academic institutions in order to offer courses which are adapted to meet their specific needs and interests. Our courses range from 1-2 days up to 6 months in duration. We are able to work with groups from individual institutions and depending on numbers we may be able to adapt or combine elements from across our courses. Courses may be taken in person at the University of Southampton or as a blended or fully online course. 

We have been providing professional development courses for Teachers of English since 2007 both in Southampton and more recently in country. We also have considerable expertise in delivering online education and training, and have developed two MOOCs in the area of English Language:
