About Us
Welcome to NILE!
NILE is a specialist teacher development institute that provides courses of the highest quality for teachers from all over the world. Each year we welcome more than a thousand language teachers, trainers and other language education professionals and we currently cover the following main areas:
  • Professional development programmes for English language teachers and trainers, both face to face and online
  • Professional development programmes for CLIL teachers (using English as a medium of instruction), including vocational teachers
  • CELTA and Delta training, delivered by INTO TEFL (as an accredited centre for Cambridge English)   
  • BEC and TKT exam preparation courses by arrangement
  • International consultancy
  • International project management
  • Delivery of short courses, seminars and workshops worldwide
  • One-to-one and executive language training                      
NILE has grown to become the biggest single provider of professional development courses for EL teachers, trainers and other education professionals in Europe, and all our teacher training courses qualify for European funding. We are members of EnglishUK, British Council and Eaquals accredited and an official examination centre for Cambridge exams. NILE is one of the very few private UK organisations accredited to run courses offering qualifications up to Master’s level and we also run Cambridge English exam preparation courses by special arrangement. 
The trainers associated with NILE all have extensive experience of designing and delivering courses for teachers, as well as of teaching English. The team includes coursebook writers and ESOL examiners and our Advisory Board includes ELT professionals with international reputations.
Since 1995 we have run hundreds of courses for thousands of participants from over 60 different countries. These courses are both open-enrolment for individual applicants and tailor-made for closed groups, specially designed for education ministries, higher education institutions and companies.
We are proud to open a new summer centre in 2015, giving our participant a choice of training in medieval Norwich or urban Manchester.
