EFL and ESOL English teachers and managers from the Lifeskills faculty are celebrating after successfully retaining British Council accreditation for all three colleges for the teaching of English in the UK.
Accreditation UK is a quality assurance scheme for UK providers of courses in English as a foreign language (EFL) which the British Council runs in partnership with English UK. Schools, colleges, and universities which offer courses in EFL can join the scheme voluntarily and members are inspected on a four-yearly basis, supported by unannounced interim visits between inspections.
The scheme gives an assurance of quality to international students who are taking or are planning to take an English language course in the UK.
Activate Learning was commended for strengths in the areas of teaching ,staff management, premises and facilities, care of students and leisure opportunities.
Andrew Marshall, Director of Lifeskills said: “We are delighted that we have been successful in continuing our accreditation and are keen to now expand our English language provision, working closely with the International team. The team have worked very hard over the past few months to ensure that we met the requirements of the inspection and it is a great result for everyone involved.”
