Renewed agreement between English UK and the British Council
We are pleased to announce the signing of a renewed partnership agreement between English UK and the British Council which extends the arrangements for the joint management of the Accreditation UK scheme until the end of December 2025.
The last two years have been extremely challenging for the UK ELT sector, with student numbers in 2021 only a tenth of pre-Covid figures and the junior market particularly hard hit.
Under the management of English UK and the British Council the accreditation scheme has adapted in response, and a number of new features have been developed to support the sector. These include the extension of accreditation to cover online delivery, the use of remote inspecting and introduction of compliance-only inspections as we resumed the inspection schedule, as well as the development of a new provisional accreditation category.
Despite the difficult circumstances, we have welcomed 28 new English language teaching organisations into accreditation during the pandemic.
