English UK is the national association of accredited English Language centres, and the world’s leading language teaching association, with around 470 members, all fully-accredited language-teaching centres in the state and private sector. We work to represent their interests, promote the UK market, and to ensure that students get the highest-possible standards of teaching and care. We also work with a range of partners, including Government bodies and the best study abroad agents, in the interests of members, students and the industry. English UK was created in 2004 from two established language centre organisations and has grown steadily. 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.
