English UK today announced that it has achieved its 2009 target of exceeding 400 members, with membership today standing at 402.
The 400th member, recruited last week, is English for Everyone, a language centre based in Aberdeen which becomes the northernmost member centre.
Tony Millns, chief executive of English UK, said: "English UK was already the world's leading language teaching association by number of member centres, and is accepted by UK government departments as the representative body for the accredited English language teaching sector in the UK. The recent growth in membership consolidates that position. And gaining a member in Aberdeen means that we really can say that we cover the UK from Aberdeen to Zennor."
