ESL Certificate of Excellence

How can we evaluate the services provided by each language school? ESL decided to assign a Certificate of Excellence to those partner schools that stood out for their exceptional performance.
 
What does the ESL Certificate of Excellence represent?
This certificate rewards those partner schools that provide a high-quality service. The students’ opinion is the main criteria to assign the certificates.
 
In October, the student feedback collected throughout the 12 previous months is analysed in order to grant the certificates. Each awarded school can show the distinction by displaying the “Certificate of Excellence” logo on its website.

Who is eligible to receive the ESL Certificate of Excellence?
All partner schools (ESL has more than 400 around the world) are eligible for this award, if they meet the requirements.
 
What are the required criteria?
Based on the students’ evaluations, ESL will assign the certificates to the schools. After their programme, students are requested to evaluate many different aspects of their stay, such as the school’s facilities, the teaching quality, the accommodation and the leisure activities.
 
Criteria each school should meet to obtain the ESL Certificate of Excellence:
  • The score of the global evaluation should be at least 4 out of 5
  • The school should be subject to at least 20 feedbacks throughout the year
 
Are ESL Certificates of Excellence affected by the judges’ opinion?
Absolutely not. Only students’ comments and evaluations received during the previous 12 months will determine the ranking. Please note that only schools that obtain a global evaluation of 4 or more are eligible.
