Membership of English UK is a badge of quality: all our members must pass one of the world's most rigorous inspection schemes, Accreditation UK, which we manage jointly with the British Council. Find out more about eligibility and the application process below.

ELT service providers

Corporate membership is open to businesses and individuals that provide services to the English language teaching sector, such as examination bodies, insurance brokers, student accommodation and IT providers.

It gives you extensive business exposure, discounted exhibition space and delegates rates and opportunities to share your business offer with English UK members.
