We have successfully and effectively delivered tailor made training programmes to hundreds of Libyans and expatriates working in Libya in a variety of sectors (e.g. banking, energy, tourism & construction). We respond to client's needs, combining English language and training topics which raise awareness and improve commercial understanding. This includes offering the following:
