Being an InCorporate Trainer

Shannon explains how being an InCorporate Trainer is different from being a “regular” Business English teacher.

The InCorporate Trainer

In-house Business English training, as delivered by Target Training. Here’s what we do, in a nutshell.

The ICT in action

Gary began teaching in 2004. He’s a former actor with an MA in Human Rights and a certification in Project Management. Learn more about Gary’s role as an InCorporate Trainer.

On-the-job training in action

Jane has twenty years’ experience in training, management and IT. She joined Target Training in 2011. In this video she explains in detail how on-the-job training works.

A day or week in the work-life of a Target InCorporate trainer is not typically routine. Even with a full schedule of training sessions, it is what comes in between that brings diversity into my workdays. My participants range from managers to office assistants to HR specialists to young apprentices. All use English in their jobs – but to different extents with different needs.”
