What makes BET so special?

Brede Court Bed & Breakfast

Established in the mid seventies, B.E.T. Ltd. (SELP) courses are designed to help participants to do their jobs in English as efficiently and as effectively as possible.


"Battle Executive Training" was founded in Battle/East Sussex hence the name - "Battle" in 1995. It became a limited company in 1998.

However, the organisation for our type of residential management business training had been created much earlier in order to satisfy a demand for this type of intensive or "total immersion"-course in England in the mid 1970s. Until 1995 our courses were exclusive to SIEMENS. As a result of some "Ex-Siemensianers" joining other companies and Siemens--internal re-organisations, we have had many course participants from other companies such as BMW, Daimler, TRW, TECHEM as well as Infineon Technologies AG and Siemens subsidiaries.

Lately, we have also provided courses for SMS Meer and Anton Paar.

Courses were held in different hotels until in 1997 when the Pound became too strong, hotel prices became too high, so, "Brede Court" was purchased and renovated to become BETs residential management training centre in East Sussex / England.


B.E.T. Ltd. have incorporated course materials used by British and American companies for the training of their own personnel. Such ‘insider’ knowledge is invaluable for successful international business.

Modular system:

Using a modular system all our courses are tailored to the customers’ needs.

Group size:

‘Small is beautiful.’ By keeping our groups small, we are able to give that ‘personal attention’ so important for efficient courses. The maximum group size is four. Individual training is also possible.

Intercultural aspects:

Today the importance of Intercultural awareness is recognised the world over as an important element in any International business. B.E.T. Ltd. course materials automatically include these aspects.

Learning system:

The B.E.T. Ltd. learning system has shown impressive results and is an invaluable part of the courses.

Course centre location:

When courses are held in Brede/England, the local environment is used to the full. Regular contact with local business people ensures a “hands-on” Intercultural experience and a 12 hour daily programme maximises the use of students’ valuable time.


Highly qualified tutors are the key to any successful course. B.E.T. Ltd. tutors are known to be the very best and all the team have had many years experience in training SIEMENS employees and those of other major international companies.
