Intercultural Awareness

Intercultural communication skills are a vital resource in today’s world. Our focus on the ‘inter’ means we go beyond national/ethnic stereotypes and take a holistic approach based on research from various disciplines. We offer our workshops for both professional and teaching staff.

Developing Cultural Awareness: an intercultural communication skills workshop for professional services staff

A 3-hour workshop for non-teaching staff, exploring what makes some intercultural encounters more successful than others.

We reflect on how expectations affect communication, including stereotyping and conventions such as punctuality and politeness. We consider some simple ways to adjust how we speak and write so that our communication is more effective.

Throughout the workshop you’ll be able to share your ideas, experience and examples of good practice with your colleagues.
