Through our workshops, you can learn from experts in their field and share ideas with other like minded professionals in the international education sector. Our workshops are topical, so you will receive up-to-date information on new and emerging theories. They are also practical, so you can immediately implement the tools and skills gained into your work environment or personal life.

We organise our workshops into two parts to allow for short reflective exercises to be completed between the sessions. This will enable you to leave our workshops with practical, tailored and achievable learning outcomes.
