Is your company ready to do business in the world’s business language? Make sure you are not losing out to your competitors!

As the world’s English experts, we can help your staff develop the English language skills they need in a global economy. We provide language skills audits, proficiency benchmarking and training tailored to the needs of your people and your organisation.

Language skills audits

Does your team have the English language skills they need for your business to succeed? Aptis – a benchmarking test used by organisations around the world – will tell you. It is computer-based, fast, flexible and accurate. And Aptis is affordable, so you can assess the language skills of entire teams and make better decisions about recruitment, workforce development and training needs.  

Proficiency benchmarking

Aptis scores will give you some very powerful insights and our English experts can help you make the most of them. We will discuss your specific needs and requirements, interview your staff, review sample documents and tasks performed in English. We will then produce a customised report with specific recommendations for further English language and skills training.


We can develop and deliver customised and highly practical training programmes to meet the needs of your business. We offer both intensive and extensive training options for groups of different sizes either at the British Council or at your premises. We can run all courses at a time and place suitable for your company.
