Small class sizes ensure that each student receives individual attention from their tutors, providing a learning experience which is unique to their needs. This close proximity between students and teachers fosters close relationships and a supportive environment, which builds confidence amongst the young learners and encourages them to succeed.
Teachers push students to achieve to the maximum of their potential, and set milestones and goals for each student, with constant evaluation. This sets the pace for each learner to surpass their academic expectations and achieve more than they thought possible.
In tandem with the development of business skills, the course piques the intellectual curiosity of the learners by exposing them to a range of authentic case studies from different areas of business, which in turn develops their critical thinking skills as they discuss and analyse them.
The mix of nationalities in the classroom and the wide range of materials covered creates an international outlook amongst students, broadening their horizons and exposing them to new ideas, cultures and ways of thinking.

The future business leader is tailored for those with the ambition of forging a career around innovative business ventures.

In turn, this leads to more successful outcomes in business.

  • • Innovation
    Students will explore through case studies how innovations have changed the world and lead to successful businesses.

    • The Business plan
    Participants learn how to put together a business plan which they are able to defend and pitch to investors. They will look at all the aspect of building a plan including the financial and creative areas. This project work helps develop research and brainstorming skills as well as giving the students training on how to critically analyse themselves and
    others. The students also learn how to display clear and strategic thinking with a financial model.

    • The role of a leader
    The session focuses on a case study of business leaders which allow the participants to analyse how they have influenced the world of business. Examples are Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Sir James Dyson and Evan Spiegel.

    • Public speaking and negotiating
    The participants engage in the skills which are key to becoming an influential business leader such as interpersonal skills, body language, social etiquette and appropriate conversations. They will also fine tune their debating, negotiation skills as well as role play, and speech writing skills.

    • An educational field trip
    Students will research a place to visit and, after doing so, they will present their findings and contrast them with their own culture.

The Experience of Living in Dawlish

Dawlish is a seaside town located in Devon on England’s south coast, approximately 350km from central London and 320km from Heathrow Airport.

Characteristic country houses, impressive villas, narrow streets, numerous shops, the famous black swans, beautiful teahouses and the singing of the seagulls, make Dawlish a charming destination.


Cultural Programme

On weekday afternoons and weekends, OISE Dawlish offers a variety of activities to encourage young people to use English in all possible contexts, allowing them to apply the language in new registers, giving them the opportunity to learn vocabulary and new ways of interacting in English as the context requires. Among the activities organised are theatre workshops, sports competitions, mini-disco, team games, talent contests, barbecues, movies, bowling and movie nights.

Every Saturday there is a day trip to places such as the Barbican Waterfront, National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth or the city of Exeter. Sunday is spent with host families.
