BEC offers assistance to Ukrainian refugees who arrived in Brno and may wish to seek employment with some of the international companies BEC also serves.

Please note: The level assessment and subsequent class allocation has already taken place. The groups are closed now and new courses will be scheduled perhaps in September again. If you’re interested in joining a class, please let us know by e-mail (email@example.com) and we’ll get back to you once the new classes are ready.
We’re launching classes of English so that Ukrainians coming to Brno may practice their English some more and bring it to a higher level, suitable for the day-to-day work in the multinational companies based in Brno which have English as their main communication language. (Read our guide Getting a job with a list of over 30 international companies which are recruiting now)
The classes are free of charge and are intended for people with Intermediate (A2) knowledge of English.
We have groups focused on the following areas:
- Business / Workplace English
- CV / Job interview preparation
- Conversation class
We are very grateful to those expats who registered to teach as volunteers and share their time with those in need and to Madri Bučková and Simon Hooper for helping us coordinate the courses. If you’d still like to join the tutors team, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
We can help you search for jobs in technology, business administration and customer support in various languages. English is needed across all the job offers, as a rule.
