In recent years, English for Academic Purposes (EAP) has become an expanding\ud discipline within universities and further education institutions, both in Britain and\ud worldwide. This expansion is confirmed by the number of recruitment advertisements\ud to be found in the press at the present time. This availability of jobs in this field seems\ud to contrast directly with shrinkages in more traditional recruitment areas such as\ud modern languages and the Humanities, and is to be welcomed by recently qualified\ud English language tutors seeking employment. However, the growth of EAP raises the\ud accompanying issue of what forms of training are needed to meet the increasing\ud numbers of international students. A reappraisal of the issue of training and\ud development in EAP seems to be crucial since the EAP practitioner’s role is a highly\ud complex one, for which no preparation seems to be wholly adequate
