Our English School Accreditations
British Council and English UK
Bloomsbury International is accredited by the British Council and is a member of English UK (the national association of accredited English language centres). In order to achieve the accreditation and membership, centres need to meet the high standards required by undergoing an independent external Accreditation UK inspection every four years.
English UK and the British Council created Accreditation UK, the world’s largest and most rigorous quality assurance scheme for English language teaching. Language centres have to be world-class to win Accreditation UK status. Standards of teaching, management and student care are inspected along with facilities and accommodation, constantly driving standards upwards.
Bloomsbury International is a member of Young Learners English UK – a Special Interest Group of English UK for accredited providers of quality English language courses for Young Learners (we identify ‘Young Learners’ as children and teenagers aged from 7 to 17 years). The group is committed to providing a safe and rewarding language learning experience for students while in the UK, through a commitment to offering the highest standards of welfare, management and teaching.
Bloomsbury International was inspected by Eaquals in 2017 and 2018 and met the high standards required for Eaquals accreditation. The teaching, the course programmes, as well as the course organisation, the learning resources, testing and evaluation were all judged to be of high quality. It was found that the institution takes great care to protect the welfare of its clients and staff, and all publicity materials produced by the institution are accurate and truthful.
