What are British Council accreditations for English schools in the UK?

Sharing is caring!

Based in six continents and over 100 countries, and working with millions of people each year, the British Council is the UK’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations. Accreditation applies to all EC English schools in the UK which are randomly selected for inspection so must operate at their best at all times.

In most cases, students will only be offered a visa to study at an accredited school, so it is important to verify the school you choose is on the list. A good school will have multiple accreditations from various bodies. This applies for students wishing to learn English at a UK or USA based school.

Enrolling in a British Council accredited English course is a great way to improve your language skills. Being accredited by the British Council means that these courses are of high quality and meet international standards. As well as providing an enjoyable learning experience, they also offer the chance to gain internationally recognised qualifications.

Taking an accredited course will give you confidence when speaking and writing in English, which can be invaluable for many professions or if you’re studying at university. It’s also useful for travel and business communication, allowing you to get around more easily in foreign countries and make new contacts abroad.

These courses have been designed to help learners progress quickly and efficiently through their studies, with experienced tutors available to provide support and guidance every step of the way and with regular practice and support, you should see your language skills improve in no time.

For those looking to gain a professional qualification, British Council accredited courses can offer a valuable assurance of quality that is recognised around the world. So, whether you’re looking to communicate more effectively on international trips or just want to brush up on your English language skills, taking a British Council accredited course could be the perfect choice for you. 

EC Language Schools are accredited by the British Council

Accreditation by The British Council intensively covers:

  • Strategic and quality management
  • Staff management and development
  • Student administration
  • Publicity

Within these criteria, the learning materials and learning resources are appropriate and adequate in number, classrooms and school facilities, accommodation, teachers’ knowledge and skills and much more. This depth ensures a quality education is given to our students in well equipped, comfortable schools and accommodation.

There are many accreditations and EC Language Centres have regular examinations to ensure they are accredited to the relevant authorities in each of the countries and age ranges it operates in.
