Corporate German Training Needs Analysis

Budget and German training plans are directly related to each other. We can follow 3 different ways while preparing the budget and German training plans. In the first approach, institutions set academic goals in German training (such as how many people will reach this level in a short time) and your Berlitz education consultant prepares the budget and German training plan necessary to achieve this goal. In the second approach, the budget, duration and number of trainees are determined. Your education consultant reports to you how much the German level of the employees who receive training can improve and to what level they can reach, with the optimum use of the budget in the specified time. In the third approach, the budget, duration and German level target are clear. In this case, your training consultant will report to you how many employees can reach the specified German level within these limits.

The target that the institution wants to achieve at the end of the German language education program is of great importance for the shaping of the education plan. For example, if an employee of a multinational company is going to go abroad and his/her German proficiency needs to be achieved in a short time, the German training program to be offered for this employee and the budget will be different from an employee who is in your talent pool or someone to be promoted in the middle term.

In corporate German trainings, we determine the current German level of all employees who will participate in the program with high accuracy with the online and speaking tests used by Berlitz all over the world.

Face-to-face German training budgets can be high in trainings of 400 people or more. In such cases, online education, virtual classroom or German language education options with Skype may be suggested.

Our corporate business German trainings have special training modules for departments and professions. Customizations will be presented to you by your Berlitz training consultant according to the job and occupation distribution of the employees who will participate in the German training.

Berlitz has virtual classroom and online German training systems for institutions with geographically widespread teams. Berlitz has been working on a global scale with companies that have large field teams such as FMCG, pharmaceuticals, food, beverage, Telecom and tobacco for many years. Similarly, companies that have production, warehouse and logistics facilities in different locations such as automotive, appliances and electronics have preferred to work with Berlitz for many years.
