How To Set Up Your Fabulous ESL Business
What you'll learn
- identify and establish your ESL teaching niche
- build networks of peers in any country where you're teaching
- build a personal brand
- market your training propositions
- You should be keen on starting your freelance ESL career, or already be teaching in ESL but looking for ways in which to branch out solo.
Want to answer the question: what does it take to succeed as an ESL trainer?
An effective, qualified trainer can not only have a profound effect on their students' lives - both professionally and personally - but can also build a financially rewarding career.
In my ten years as an ESL trainer I've moved from language school L-plater to fully-booked freelancer, and this course details how you can enjoy the same success.
Through a combination of video, audio and text lectures delivered in my trademark sunshine style, I cover the six steps I've identified as necessary to establish a successful solo career as an ESL trainer. And all compressed into 40 minutes!
Take this course to get your ESL career soaring!
"Jacqueline has been my trainer since 2009, and has worked with me to improve my skills in English communication, specifically in business writing, speaking and presentations. She takes a communicative approach, simulating real-life situations, and has a wealth of knowledge to pull from." - Claudia Broghammer, Management Consultant at HR Campus AG
"Jacqueline was my colleague at inlingua Chemnitz for three years. In the course of this time I could watch her developing from “just" a skilful speaker of English into a passionate, TESOL-qualified language trainer who very soon became a favourite with her employer, colleagues and clients. Her warm, welcoming and open-minded personality as well as her dedication to high quality and goal orientation made her a wonderful and reliable colleague to work with." - Anja Pleul, Öffentlich bestellte und allgemein beeidigte Übersetzerin für Englisch / Sprachtrainerin Englisch / DaF
Who this course is for:
- This course is for ESL trainers (qualified or almost qualified) seeking a successful career and wanting to go it alone, spread their wings and teach solo. It's probably not for ESL trainers comfortable to work solely in a language school environment, as it explores pathways to solo success. It's based on my nine years' experience as a successfully self-employed trainer, and the principles of this success cross borders.
I offer two distinct types of courses: for instructional designers and ESL professionals, and for English learners.
For Instructional Designers and ESL Professionals - I want to show you how to build a successful career as a trainer by helping you focus on both the profession and the possibilities generated by implementing instructional design principles and observing best practice business management.
Why? Because I love being a successful business owner, I love being a trainer. And I want to share this passion and enthusiasm with you, help you solve training problems and build a successful career.
For English Learners - capitalise on my 11 years’ experience training business professionals in effective communication skills, and find out why my clients keep coming back for more!
