In English Training instead we make the course content..better understand from trainees/with your assessment what they are lacking and prepare the modules. In such programmes participation is important. This will create interest and will be effective.

I run similar kind of sessions in my organization by name "Impressive speech sessions". The entire agenda of these classes has been divided in two categories:
1. Language Skills
2. Pronunciation & Confidence building
Now I do not have any set module or presentation, however the structure is as follows:
1. For Lanugauge skills
parts of speech
Subject Verb Agreement
Active Passive Speech
Direct Indirect Speech
2. For pronunciation I follow a presentation from my previous company.
Sounds of P T K
Practicing for day to day word usage.
Refer to below mentioned materila for tenses:
In English, only two tenses can be distinguished in the verb alone: the simple present tense and the simple past tense. All other forms use extra words, called auxiliaries, to distinguish tenses.
Current action or condition: I hear you. Here comes the bus. General truths: There are thirty days in September.
Habitual feeling or action: I like music. I run on Sundays. Future Time: The train leaves at 4:00.
Activity in progress: I am playing soccer now. Verbs of perception: He is feeling sad.
Completed action: We visited the museum yesterday. Completed condition: The weather was bad yesterday.
Past action that took place over a period of time: They were climbing for twenty-seven days. past action interrupted by another: We were eating dinner when she told me.
Action that will take place in the future: I will walk to school across the country. I won't be spending a lot of money.
With verbs of state that began in the past and lead up to and include the present: He has lived here for years.
To express habitual or continued action: She has worn glasses all her life.
With events occuring at an indefinite time in the past (with ever, never, before): Have you ever been to Tokyo?
Present Perfect Progressive:
To express duration of an action that began in the past, has continued into the present and may continue into the future: Laura has been working for two hours, and she hasn't finished yet.
To describe a past event or condition completed before another event in the past:
When I arrived home, he had already called. Jane had seen the movie before I asked her to go.
Past Perfect Progressive:
To express duration of an action that began and ended in the past, in relation to another event in the past:
She had been walking when a car hit her.
To express action that will be completed by or before a specified time in the future:
By next month we will have finished the job.
Future Perfect Progressive:
To express ongoing action that is taking place in relation to another future event:
By the time Kate flies to Mexico City, Rob will have been driving for eighteen long hours.
Past Participles and the Perfect Tenses
As the examples above show, the prefect tenses always use the auxiliary infinitive verb to have along with the past participle of the main verb in the sentence. The past participle is often exactly the same as the past-tense form of the verb, but there are a large number of irregular past participles. In either case, the past participle remains constant, whether the tense is present perfect, past perfect, or future perfect. The distinction between the tenses is made by the form of the auxiliary verb to have, which can appear as has, had, or will have.
List of Common Past Participles

Investing for employees development is always good. The course you are talking about sounds to be good and will be implemented in a professional way for sure. However there's a major concern. When it comes to langauge skills session, it is very important that participants feel comfortable with the trainer and other participants. Now if you get it done from some external agency, participants may feel a little uncomfortable infront of an external expert. Also it involves money.
So I would advise you to do it in house. Talk to your employess and try to make groups on the basis of their present level of communication skills. For example: there might be few who need to start from very basics, there would be few who are fine with sentence construction but they would have hesitation problem. So accordingly prepare agenda for each group. And instead of keep agenda for a day or two, it is better to split into smaller sessions.
And if even after thiss, you think there isn't much improvement then you can seek assistance from external agency.
Let me know if I can be of some help.

thanks a lot for ur suggestion..we have conducted a pre-test on empl who r nominated for this course. I think we r going ahead with ext trainers. I'll talk to each trainee personally about the prog and what attitude they shud kepp in the training room.
However above number is still small..There r many others in my org who really need such prog..For them we can conduct the course in-house. Here ur PPTs and advice will come to my rescue for sure :)
can u plz gimme ur email id so that i can write u directly
