ETpedia Management brings you 500 tips, ideas, and concepts to help you run an English language school. Over 50 list-based units, it covers everything from the basic principles of running a language school, department or organisation, to problem solving and growth management. You’ll find inspiration in each unit whether you’re managing for the first time or an experienced manager looking to further develop your skill set.
Many of the units also contain an activity based on a photocopiable handout, which you will find in the Appendix. These are motivating tasks, perfect for self-reflection or for your teachers to do in a continuing professional development session. They’re also adaptable – you can use them as they are or develop them to suit your own context.
Throughout the book you will find quotes from experienced managers, Director of Studies. Here you’ll find school owners sharing their views, ideas and experiences on managing an English Language school or department.
