Eight English UK members have made it to the finals of the British Council's prestigious ELTons awards.
Four language centre members are competing in three award categories, while four corporate members are all shortlisted for Excellence In Course Innovation.
Sarah Cooper, chief executive of English UK, said: "It's really pleasing to see so many of our members shortlisted for these prestigious awards, especially when they are up against stiff competition from all over the world.
"In our sector, innovation and enterprise are so important, helping providers to meet new challenges and get one step ahead. Our mission at English UK is to lead the UK English language teaching industry to success, through innovation and intelligence, and it's significant that so many more of our members have made it to the shortlist than in recent years."
The ELTons take place on Wednesday 14 June and Sarah Cooper will be presenting the course innovation award during the night. Best of luck to all our nominated members!
