Global training capability

Language Solutions International (LSI) provides English language training and educational manpower supply services to major projects around the world.

We have an unrivalled track record in delivering customised training (English for Specific Purposes) for a wide range of key industries, including oil and gas, aerospace, offshore and construction.

Our flexible operating model means we can support any size of training programme, from well-established operations to start-up projects requiring a full turn-key solution. Our language tuition can be delivered as a stand-alone training programme, or can be integrated with apprenticeship, new-hire or technical training programmes delivered by partner organisations.
Locations of our training have varied from the remote oilfields of the Algerian Sahara to placing trainers onboard Italian naval vessels patrolling the coast of Libya for the United Nations. Our international project experience has covered the following countries:

  • Africa: Algeria, Libya, Angola, Sudan
  • Middle East: Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Iraq, Oman, Bahrain
  • FSU: Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Georgia
  • Asia: Indonesia, Thailand, India
  • Europe: Hungary, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Norway
  • South America: Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil
  • Offshore platforms and sea-going vessels

Online, face-to-face or blended learning?

We offer flexible training models which are appropriate to the working environment and operational schedules of each project.

If face to face training is not possible, because of Covid-19 restrictions or other factors, all our language courses can be delivered remotely by instructor-led online classes.

Our blended learning programmes, incorporating e-learning modules, instructor-led virtual classes and an innovative Client Hub, are ideal for delivering training to remote locations, such as offshore facilities. These hybrid programmes also permit training of groups based in multiple locations and can accommodate shift patterns, allowing training to be scheduled 24/7 for 365 days a year.

In-country teams

We deploy highly qualified English teachers with relevant industry experience to many locations. Ensuring our customers comply with local content requirements, our teams often combine expatriate specialists with outstanding local instructors.

All our in-country teams are provided with academic support by our international projects team, who regularly visit overseas operations for quality control.

Services provided:

  • Project staffing and programme design

  • Visas, medicals, mobilisation and logistics

  • Language audits, placement testing and course design

  • Specialist teaching and bespoke assessment materials

  • Cost-effective blended learning solutions

National workforce development

With technical training partners, we have been involved in many long-term programmes which exist to develop the language and technical skills of national and regional workforces.

Examples range from economic-offset programmes supporting “Saudisation” in KSA, to long term apprentice training programmes in Indonesia and Azerbaijan.

The specialist English language training we provide to support such programmes is often considered by clients to be a crucial part of the structure of a successful technical training programme.
