Online Training: July-December 2023

In proud partnership with Beaumont Etiquette, New York

Since 2010 The English Manner has offered a sought-after Train the Trainer programme. Twelve years later we are pleased to have revised and expanded the programme for the current age.

Together with our partners Beaumont Etiquette, we are able to offer the world’s most comprehensive and thorough training programme in etiquette and protocol, creating a new gold standard for our industry.

We are now able to offer the course online, as well as in-person in New York and Singapore.

Applications are now open for the next intake for our online programme, which begins in July 2023 and runs for six months. Successful candidates will be contacted from April to secure their place.

Our comprehensive and accredited online Train the Trainer programme enables you to train others in the fields of etiquette and protocol, expanding your knowledge from the comfort of your own home and in your own time.

If you have any questions regarding the Train the Trainer programme, then please book in a 15 minute complimentary  enquiry call with William Hanson.

The e-learning programme has been carefully designed to provide you with the skills for transformational teaching of your clients anywhere in the world, to build your own commercially successful business platforms, or to expand and enhance your own knowledge of etiquette and protocol for social and professional gain.

The programme contains key topics of British and Western social and business etiquette.

What our students say

Each module content is most detailed and informative. The twice-monthly webinar catch-up is an invaluable addition where tutor and course colleagues interact, learn and share the course content. From completing the course, I feel personally empowered and enriched.

Learning from The English Manner and Beaumont Etiquette was imperative to me as a new etiquette trainer. Their expertise in both the content and how to successfully teach it is second to none. The information taught in Grade One of The Train the Trainer Program was heavily detailed.

This education is one of the best in my life. The structure, the way of teaching, live sessions, - everything was well-organized and easy to learn.

July - December 2021

Train the Trainer presents a highly informative and engaging curriculum for those who want more than a finishing program, and for those who have an interest in becoming an etiquette instructor. It’s a great opportunity to network with like-minded people, as well as gain invaluable experience from the monthly live calls with William and Myka, who have each built outstanding global brands in the industry.

The online platform can be accessed anywhere in the world, subject to localised internet laws. It is accessible via desktop, laptop, tablet and most of the major smartphones. Training videos are subtitled in English, which can be turned on/off at leisure.

The modules can be completed in your own time. Each month sees new content released (one module per month, roughly, with some unexamined content also released across the six months). There is no hard deadline to complete each module but they all must be completed before the examination at the end of the six month programme.

We review this on a case-by-case basis but in most instances we can accommodate unforeseen occurrences. An extension can be given for most cases. We reserve the right to ask to see a signed and stamped medical letter.

While the modules have to be completed within six months, access to the online classroom remains for a further month after the examination ends. We reserve the right to revoke access immediately and without prior notice should any of the agreed payments not be made on the stipulated day or if we become aware of any breaches of copyright.

There content delivered is the same, except for the method of delivering the training. For the in-person training, candidates enjoy seven full consecutive days of training from Myka and William. The training manual(s) are then given on day seven for students to take away and use for revision for the online exam, which is emailed one month later.

The online programme is delivered over a longer period of time, using the online classroom and live webinars. It is ideal for those who wish to take a little longer with their studies.

The course runs in blocks from January-June and July-December and all candidates for Grade One must belong to either block. 

Because graduates of our programme represent over 30 countries, we keep a database of our graduates and their companies so third parties can verify whether the graduate has completed the training.  Graduates can opt-out of this at any time.  To view the database, click here.
