FLC accreditation is based on the highest level of quality principles, drawn from up-to-date research about what is known to best support effective English teaching... I wholeheartedly endorse the work of FLC in promoting high standards of teaching and learning in English language teaching centres around the world.
Anne Burns, UNSW, Australia & Aston University, UK
This is a much needed initiative. At a time when language schools and centres are mushrooming, prospective staff and students need reassurances that the centres they are looking to work or study in are ethically and professionally managed according to transparent principles. FLC accreditation meets this need and I fully support it.
Andy Kirkpatrick, Griffith University, Australia
This is an important and long overdue initiative. Professional institutions need reliable measures to distinguish themselves from fly-by-night schools and to give students the confidence they are making the right decisions about where to study. This information concerning the quality of provision is an invaluable service to the ELT profession.
Ken Hyland, University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong
A thoroughly documented and well reflected process, to the benefit of language centers and their students!
Edgar Schneider, University of Regensburg, Germany
Accreditation matters to teachers, students and administrators of ELT programs. I support the setting up of FLC Accreditation and applaud its principle-based approach to ensure that top quality ELT programs are provided.
