Take Part in BLOOM and
Watch Your  Grow!

WHAT IS BLOOM?

BLOOM is the Business Language Objective-Oriented Mastery Program, or BLOOM.

The Business Class BLOOM process provides an easy-to-follow framework for business language trainers
(Business English or other language) that will refresh your skills, renew your enthusiasm, reconnect you to your learners, and uplevel your offering.

CLARITY. IMPACT. VALUE.

Who is BLOOM for?

BLOOM is for junior and senior language trainers alike (Business English or otherwise), seeking to boost clarity, impact, and value when serving the business community. (Note: BLOOM contributes toward Qualiopi* compliance for France-based trainers.)

Maybe you’ve been training for eons and your enthusiasm is waning. Maybe you are not new to language teaching, but training business people in Business English is a whole new kettle of fish. Maybe your planning is monopolizing your out-of-class time and you need a better way.

Is BLOOM the right fit for you? By applying for BLOOM, you’ll be invited to a pre-qualifying conversation call to help find out. Note: trainers of all languages are welcome, but materials are presented in English.

A New Dynamic

Not only will you learn, or revisit your approach to goal-setting, but you’ll also gain new insights on feedback and formative assessment along the learning journey. Most importantly, you’ll see how to integrate the learner into the goal-setting, planning, and evaluation stages, thereby forging a new dynamic of partnership in your language lessons that is a motivating win-win for trainer and learner alike.

CREATE MORE

CLARITY

for You and Your Trainees
with a Proven Framework.

BLOOM helps you implement effective and purposeful training with a clear, easy-to-follow structure of objective-setting, planning, and assessment check-ins.

IMPACT

by Aligning Your Training Skills to the
Needs of Business English Learners.

Business language learners have specific needs and no time to waste. Increase your training impact by learning how to deliver exactly what they need, when they need it and  watch your client satisfaction rates soar.

VALUE

and Elevate the Experience with
a Partnership Mindset.

Establishing a partnership with your
learners multiplies motivation and
satisfaction for you both.
Learn to set this “in-tandem” tone, provide crucial validation,  and create a productive and enriching learning environment.

BOOST YOUR

EFFICIENCY

 with a Road Map Designed in
Tandem with Your Learners.

Cut your planning time and double your efficiency with a roadmap designed together with your learners. You’ll be thanking yourself over and over when you see how your roadmap eliminates the week-to-week guess-work on your side and increases trainee personal investment.

SKILL LEVEL

 via Thought-Provoking
Discussions with Your Peers.

Connect with a community of professionals like you and learn from shared experiences.  “Alone we are smart. Together we are brilliant.” (Steven Anderson)

CONFIDENCE

with a Coaching-influenced Approach.

Stating goals and reaching them is a proven confidence booster. The BLOOM process allows for this repeatedly over the training period. A natural result is a motivating, confidence-building loop for trainer and trainee alike.

ADD TO YOUR 

Return On Investment (ROI)

by Providing Excellent Service that Leads to Renewed Business.

We’ve had great learner feedback for trainers in the BLOOM Beta phase. Happy learners are happy clients and happy clients renew.

SERENITY

 into Your Planning with a Time-Saving Tool to Guide You.

BLOOM Explained by its Creators

Daphne Elie / Gabriella Benkő

A word from BLOOM’s developers, Business Class founder, Daphne Elie and Coach, Facilitator and Trainer Gabriella Benkő:

“We are mindful that trainers are very busy people and so this format intends to be as flexible as possible so that everyone can advance at their own rhythm.

The main characteristic of the program is the importance we place on sharing experiences, understandings, best practices, observations, and feedback. It’s meant to be an interactive exchange as well as an internal, reflective process. The 6-month time-frame was chosen deliberately so that the participants can practice, experiment and reflect.

Our vision is of a transformational experience where one can step into a new posture as trainer/guide working in tandem with their trainee and come out with a more wholly satisfying and motivating training experience for all involved.”

How do I obtain a validation certificate?

Assessment takes place throughout the program both informally and formally. Facilitators will be assessing growth, while each module includes a clearly-outlined assessment task to complete.

Full attendance and active participation are necessary to reap the benefits of this program. Certificate of participation which can be provided for Qualiopi will be obtained once requirements are met.
