English Leadership Programme

Year-round (except July)

Group bookings only
12-17 year olds

Our English Leadership Programme is an ideal opportunity to help you discover your own potential by developing interpersonal and leadership skills whilst improving your English.

You will finish the course feeling confident and ready to start the next chapter of your life and be armed with the language to do so.

Along with a selection of general English topics your lessons will have a specific focus on youth leadership. Topics include:

  • Presentation
  • Influence
  • Being the Boss
  • Youth Leadership
  • Motivation
  • Confidence building
  • Teamwork

We want you to enjoy our lessons and have picked topics which will interest you.

Our methodology is about giving you the chance to communicate in English so you won’t be faced with the same boring old grammar exercises that you get at home. You will be involved in projects and tasks which will inspire you and make you want to use your English.

Our teachers are specially trained to activate the knowledge you already have, correct your mistakes and make you a more confident speaker. You will have the chance to improve your vocabulary and grammar too.

Your final project

At the end of your course you will collaborate with your classmates on a final project. This is a chance to put everything you have learnt to the test.

You will work together to prepare a project for a formal presentation in front of your peers, your teachers and you are welcome to invite your Scottish hosts.

The linguistic benefits to this project are endless; as well as writing skills you will have plenty of practise with conversational English, formal language, language of opinions and much more.

Your activity programme

Our activities are carefully planned and well organised for your benefit. We want you to enjoy them and learn new things at the same time.

Our specially trained activity staff will make sure you get all the information that you need on a destination and also that your time there is used as well as possible.

We include confidence building and team challenges during our cultural activities to help keep things fun and entertaining. After all, you learn more when you are having fun, right?!
