The Virtual InCorporate Trainer

A global solution for Business English training and support

An effective, flexible training solution for employees and teams who work virtually

Since 2013 we’ve been delivering our highly effective InCorporate Trainer as a virtual solution. The Virtual InCorporate Trainer works just like a traditional InCorporate Trainer … but virtually. The trainer supports your teams or departments no matter where they are located. The Virtual InCorporate Trainer helps you work more effectively and efficiently in English, whether it be delivering clearer presentations, participating in online meetings with more confidence, or exchanging information faster and more accurately using email.

Who’s it for?

This high-quality training solution is for companies with teams or departments in different locations, or who work from isolated offices. The Virtual InCorporate Trainer offers equal training opportunities for employees who work from home and/or employees who travel a lot. The Virtual InCorporate Trainer is a proven and effective way of developing your staff’s business English skills and providing on-the-job support– no matter where they are based!

“Participants really value the fact that they are getting training using the same tools they now need to use every day at work. They love being able to practice meeting skills in an authentic environment and value being able to train two things at the same time – improving their business English AND becoming more skilled at working virtually.”

How the Virtual InCorporate Trainer solution works for our clients

The Virtual InCorporate Trainer offers equal training opportunities for employees who are working in a hybrid work environment, from home and/or travel a lot. This training solution is a proven and effective way of developing your staff’s business English skills and providing on the job support– no matter where they are based! Here are some client examples:

Building skills and sharing experiences across corporate purchasing

Our client’s corporate purchasing division spreads across 11 locations in Germany. Looking to build a sense of community and team AND offer the same quality of training to everyone the client invested in a virtual InCorporate Trainer. The purchasing and procurement teams benefited from on-the-job English support, feedback after shadowing, and SCM-targeted training topics. Naturally, negotiating, influencing and contract management formed a major part of the tailored program.

Offering the same quality of training globally

Our client was looking to offer equally effective training opportunities to its employees around the world – and an “open” virtual InCorporate Trainer provided the right solution. Employees in Germany, Mexico, France, China, and Vietnam, benefited from job-relevant training. This global solution included level- and function-based groups, on the-the-job support and regular online workshops to further develop core communication skills.

Being on site won’t stop the project execution teams from improving their English

The client’s project execution teams often need to travel for extended periods and work on site. The Virtual InCorporate Trainer provided a practical solution that meant that business English training could continue no matter where they were in the world, and that they could stay connected with colleagues in the headquarters too! On-the-job support connected with regular training groups and their client soon asked to join the training too!

Training and support no matter where you work

Bringing together any client’s sales department for training is a challenging task. However, whether they were on the road visiting clients, at the back office or working from home the Virtual InCorporate Trainer provided 1-1 and small group training opportunities. Coaching and on-the—job support was highly valued – especially with sensitive emails, key presentations and working virtually. They got the training and support they needed when they needed it.

Business English in action

English on the job – for the job

Our client has been a leading global provider of biogas plants since 1995. The company provides comprehensive solutions from one single source and has installed more than 500 plants worldwide. With a global customer base, being able to work in English has always been important. However the German parliament’s decision in 2014 to substantially reduce biogas subsidies made the need to sell and deliver globally a business-critical challenge. Being able to work confidently in English was now a must.

The previous “weekly classes” approach to business English training just wasn’t enough. As the Head of HR put it “the training was really isolated from what we were doing, and what we were working on.” Ensuring that employees can operate effectively and with confidence in English became a priority. A new solution was needed where training was directly related to the staff’s business needs and quickly impacted on-the-job performance.

We developed a blended approach based around the core strengths of the InCorporate Trainer solution – flexibility, tailored training and on-the-job support. Business English training became job-specific and practical. When staff needed to write documents and mails, join meetings, or make calls, our trainer proactively provided on-the-job support. This then led to feedback, which in turn was used to further customize the focus and content of scheduled training (seminars, 1-to-1 training, groups and online). Finally, regular updating and reporting meant that the client had transparency and control over their training investment.

“The implementation of the training concept was very easy. Because of the structure we were able to set up a schedule in a very short time, organize assessments, assess language skills and directly start with the training.”

Fun Learning

Target Training

The most important point about the training is that it’s very close to the job. And the concept is very flexible – whenever we have a special need or request, it can be catered for.What has definitely changed is that people have lost their fear of using English. They are much more professional in terms of answering the telephone, writing emails, and communicating with foreign customers. And our people are having fun learning – they really like to speak English now. That was our goal!

Finding the right tone

Target Training

I frequently involve my English teacher in my daily work. With his help I improved lots of English documents like reports, presentations and emails. The most important thing for me is to find the right tone, as the English way of communicating differs a lot from the German one.

The best practice of English business language you can get, is learning it with the trainers from TARGET. In our company/department, the trainers are fully integrated, they will come on request to assist you to write complex technical and contractual letters, to support you to prepare business meetings etc.
