Recognizing your Training Goals

Recognizing your Training Goals

A workforce with competent English skills has significant advantages in terms of job performance in an era of increased globalization.

Effective communication is vital to make a sale, to promote an idea, to project the image of an educated and efficient workforce-- in short-- to get the job done! This is especially true in Saudi Arabia, a highly competitive market with a mixed-language labour force.

Job Performance. Many positions in a factory or office rely on English for everyday tasks. Admin staff, technical workers and management all need to have fundamental English skills.

Mixed Language Labor Force

For effective communication between employees of different nationalities, English skills unify the workforce.

In-House Training.

Companies often have their own plans to train their employees for more complex tasks unique to their operations. This may require the study of an in-house technical or specialist’s manual, for which students must first be trained in general English skills.


IH now offers comprehensive placement testing for English in the areas of technical and plant operations training.
