The ability to communicate competently in the global business language of English is essential for GAC to work in a unified way across its many sectors. The Global English Programme (GEP) aims to improve the ability of individuals from a non-English speaking background to communicate effectively across borders and cross-cultural teams, using English in a business context. The focus is on practical business English and introducing learners, from beginners to advanced, to common business language that they will use in their daily professional interactions.
GEP has been tailored for GAC with many unique features:
|Relevance:||Business-specific content customised to your role and ability level.|
|Collaboration:||Although everyone has their own style, the community platform will help you to work with like-minded people around the world on their various business tasks.|
|Motivation:||One-to-one regular guidance with an advisor and personal encouragement with individual goals for you.|
|Productivity:||Increased access to language experts for quick, productive feedback. Availability of everyday business tools and templates for faster, more efficient ways to complete work. The programme also offers cultural briefings that help you prepare for global interaction with your colleagues in the GAC World.|
|Flexibility:||Accessible online and on-demand, with content translated into 15 languages.|
|Simplicity:||An intuitive interface that allows for easy administration, measurement and tracking.|
|Interactivity:||GEP offers an interactive, engaging environment for you to practice Business English and receive feedback from a teacher in a virtual classroom. For example, you can submit a writing activity and receive spelling feedback and suggestions for correcting spelling mistakes.|
GEP is a 52-week self-paced course, delivered in partnership with an external learning service provider.
GCA eLearning courses require approximately five hours per week for all courses. It is the expectation of the GAC Group Management that all GAC employees are provided with sufficient time to complete the core requirements of each course within working hours. In order to establish higher results, participants are encouraged to fully complete all activities, and additional personal time may be required outside of working hours.
“It is fantastic to hear that GCA is offering the Global English Programme (GEP) again. It perfectly portrays how effective GCA aims to level up the communication standards in our group. I very much recommend this course to anyone wanting to improve their English language skills.”
Rodrigo De Marco
“I strongly believe that signing up for a GCA course is always a learning opportunity. The Global English Programme (GEP) is one of those that I appreciated. It has a very user-friendly platform with the online convenience. GEP has showed the importance of effective communication using a common language to understand each other as a key success factor in a multi-national business organisation like GAC. It has indeed improved my confidence level in both written and verbal communication.”
