International training solutions in Brighton


We work with a range of clients to provide a wide range of training solutions and are able to design a course specifically for your students or trainees. If you are unsure what you are looking for, why not take a look at some of the courses we can offer:

Cabin Crew Training

Making use of our aviation centre, students can get a taste of life in the air. Our centre contains a mock aircraft cabin, with aircraft seats, trolleys and emergency equipment in a modified classroom.

“I am happy, thank you. I never forget this college life”
Yukako, Japan, Cabin Crew Training

Students can practice emergency procedures, airplane announcements and on-board service learning some of the skills needed to gain employment in the airline industry. Our courses are combined with training at London Gatwick and Heathrow Airports by Virgin Airlines and British Airways.

Students learn many different elements of the role of cabin crew service, from how to leave the aircraft by the emergency slide and put out minor fires, to how to meet uniform and personal presentation requirements.

English Language Plus Business and British Culture

Students will study classes covering Marketing, Branding, UK History, Media and Politics. Part of this course is a retail research project; students collect market research through shop visits and interviews with members of the public to inform the presentation of a product launch from their home country to the Brighton marketplace. Participants have access to our entrepreneur in residence, talks from local businesses and organisations, and feedback on their project presentation from a panel of experts.

Alongside studying in college, options include industry visits specific to curriculum area, and cultural or social excursions led by our activity leaders, including Oxford, London, Seven Sisters and mountain biking in the South Downs National Park.

English Language Exam Courses

Our exam preparation courses show learners the skills and techniques needed to successfully sit internationally recognised assessments of English language proficiency, such as IELTS, TOEIC and Cambridge Exam courses.

“Thank you very much for the first class teaching, and all the help, care and support you have provided me, while studying for the IELTS exam”
Jorge, Spain, IELTS Exam Preparation

IELTS is the International English Language Training System and is accepted by thousands of institutions worldwide. It is recognised internationally by universities, workplaces and governments as an assessment of your English Language proficiency. It is suitable for learners planning to attend an academic or vocational course at any UK institution, or for learners planning to attend an English-speaking university for an undergraduate or postgraduate course.

During the course learners will become familiar and confident with all four parts of the IELTS examination as they are shown and practise the exam skills necessary to be successful.

This intensive exam practice course will help learners overcome any exam anxiety they may have.

“I feel interested in our classes because everyday we learn something new”
Maria, Italy, PET Exam preparation

Cambridge Exam Courses are designed for higher-level students who want to improve their English. These courses are dynamic and exciting and are taught by lecturers who have helped thousands of students learn English in a supportive and fun environment, at an outstanding College in the heart of Brighton.

Your learners can study towards the world famous Cambridge Preliminary English Test (PET), Cambridge First Certificate in English exam (FCE) or the higher level Cambridge Advanced Certificate (CAE).

Exam preparation courses work particularly well with Teacher Training and Teaching Methodology Training, or alongside a fuller social and cultural program.
