British Council English for the Workplace Symposium
The British Council Qatar is hosting the first English for the Workplace symposium in Qatar. This event will provide a platform for you to meet with other representatives from the corporate and educational sector in Qatar to determine the training requirements of your current employees and/or students. From an educational viewpoint, you will be able to hear exactly what it is that the various industries require and how you could integrate this into curriculum design.

She currently addresses language planning and policy in the labour force in developing, EFL countries.
