The IBS designs and offers two main types of English Language programs:
- Multi-Level Programs that develop core language skills common to a wide range of job areas in the context of business and banking. These programs address the needs of language learners, from beginners to advanced, developing listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. In this category, the IBS will now offer an introduction to Business English and a two-level Business English program in collaboration with Cambridge English Language Assessment, part of Cambridge University, UK. The Cambridge English program will prepare trainees for the BEC Preliminary and BEC Vantage examinations. The Institute will also offer a two-level General English program that will prepare participants for the Cambridge KET and PET examinations. Trainees who successfully complete these courses will be issued a certificate from the University of Cambridge.
- Specialist Programs that address a variety of language learning needs. These are short duration courses that develop a wide variety of specific language skills. Examples of the current IBS offerings include: English Conversation Skills (Level 1 and 2), English for Emails, English for Human Resources, English for Call Centers, English for Customer Service, and English for Business Presentations.
- English Language Audit Service that aims at assessing the client organization’s requirements and matching them to the actual language aptitude/performance of their staff. Based on the outcome of the audit system, relevant syllabi and training materials will be proposed to the client organization to rectify the various linguistic problems.
Testing Service that aims at introducing various placement and aptitude tests either to place participants in the various programs offered by the Training Department or to help organizations with their recruitment and placement requirements
