CCD’S group programmes are tailor-made to meet the specific needs of each partner institution.

 

  • The three key components of group programmes are usually English language tuition, homestay and activities.
  • There are no minimum or maximum time periods for group programmes to be provided.
  • The minimum age to participate in a group programme at CCEL is 14 years.
  • The minimum number of students required to deliver a group programme is generally 10 students.
  • Students receive a certificate and course report at the completion of the programme.

Our group programmes are aimed at a range of students with differing requirements, including;

  • High school students requiring a study abroad experience that involves a strong balance of English language tuition and activities.
  • University students needing specialised English language classes to complement their overall cultural exchange experience.
  • (Non-native speaking) English teachers requiring additional training and skills – these programmes have a TESOL and Teaching Methodology focus.
  • Specialised courses such as Business English and IELTS in a closed group environment.
