English at Work

English at Work was designed to provide onsite job-specific English language training as well as cultural and essential skills to assist employees in succeeding and advancing at work. We are now offering an online or blended option to English at Work programs.

English at Work has been providing this service to local companies for over 30 years. We offer it in partnership with Enhanced English Skills for Employment.
