Flexibility – the key to our success

Whatever the size of your language training programme, we will adapt all aspects of our training and course management to suit your individual needs. You can choose the extent to which you are involved with the administrative process – and this in itself can be regularly reviewed and adapted.

Once you have chosen Language Services Direct to provide your company’s training, we will arrange an initial planning meeting to:

  • ensure we have a full understanding of your company’s objectives for language learning
  • agree which training formats are most suitable for your company’s requirements and budget
  • establish your preferred procedures for course set-up, monitoring, evaluation, reporting and invoicing
  • decide how much (or how little) involvement you wish to have in the administration
  • agree at which stages of the course you (and other managers) need to be included in the process
  • decide how best to tailor our course documents to suit your company requirements
  • establish which management information you wish to receive, how often, and in what format
  • draft a service level agreement for your approval, and for regular review

Account Management – effective & efficient administration

Each of our clients is assigned a dedicated Account Manager as the central point of contact between you, the trainers and the learners. All Language Services Direct Account Managers have:

  • a language training qualification and experience teaching business language learners
  • experience working in a client services environment
  • experience learning at least one other language themselves

As a result, your Account Manager:

  • can empathise with the needs of both the learners and the trainers
  • will identify any difficulties encountered with the language learning, and recommend solutions
  • is client-service orientated and responsive to the needs of the L&D department
  • will respond quickly and efficiently to all requests
  • can manage your language training programme in a responsive and cost-effective manner
