ENGLISH AS A TOOL - for apprentices!

The CIC initiated this unique training programme in collaboration with “Land Kärnten”. With “English as a Tool” language learning goes from the schoolbench to the workbench. English native speakers who are international language trainers go directly into the company training centre and speak to the apprentices exclusively in the English language.

They practice specific technical vocabulary and remove the dread of the foreign language.Foreign languages are becoming increasingly important and represent an important part of the specialized staff training. It is mainly international companies based in Carinthia that communicate in English, the group language. With subject-specific English training, the CIC provides participants with a head start with the ‘English as a Tool’ programme.

What the CIC offers:
-The ‘English as a Tool’ programme can achieve great results without much commitment
-the face-to-face interaction that is practised exclusively in the English language brings an additional benefit to English language proficiency.
-The allocation of English-speaking language trainers (native speakers).
-“Land Kärnten” subsidizes this training tool by 50% (to a maximum of €2,600) of the employee advancement pot. The same amount is borne by the operator of the apprenticeship workshops.

-A time frame extends over eight weeks (with 72 teaching units altogether) with two visits or training sessions a week.
