Programme Overview

English for Professionals

English has become the business sector’s dominant language. As you are aware, it is used in more than 80% of the world’s business, trade and financial transactions. However, a good number of employees in Cyprus do not feel comfortable using English in their work-environment despite having studied the language at school. This limits productivity and effectiveness and results in many missed opportunities for both employees and employers.

With this in mind, the CIIM Professional English programme was designed to enable people to master the English language with confidence, and to utilise it effectively in their work.

The Programme takes place in Nicosia, and consists of a total of 100 teaching hours made up of 33, three-hour classes. A convenient evening schedule makes it possible for employees to attend without any disruption from their work. The upcoming programme will commence on 31 January 2018 and it will be taught twice a week. Courses are expected to finish by the end of May 2018 (exact dates will depend on days missed during public holidays).
