The London School of English and its franchisees celebrate 100 years of teaching
The London School of English is celebrating its centenary this year and to mark this milestone it has organized a series of events, activities and projects designed to highlight the importance of language and communications training around the world.
Timothy Blake, London School of English Chief Executive, commented, “It is a great honour to be presiding over the School for this remarkable anniversary. Throughout our history we have offered a top-quality, personal service and this core aim remains the same. I am well aware that to keep our place at the high end of this competitive field, we need to keep evolving and looking forwards. We are constantly reviewing our teaching methods and refreshing our courses. In 2008 we launched online learning and this year we will roll out a blended learning course. We have added an English for Young Engineers course to our successful Young Professionals strand and this will also launch in 2012.”
The original London School of English opened in London in 1912 and by the 1950s was seen as a leading member of a growing sector. When the Government of the day established an accreditation scheme, the London School of English was the first school to be inspected and approved. The London School of English currently offers intensive English language courses ranging from elementary to advanced standard. Courses are designed to help individuals at every stage of their lives and range from academic preparation to highly-specialised, sector-focused business courses. The London School of English currently operates schools in Canterbury and Stockholm as well as London. In addition, the School has franchise partnerships in South Korea, Georgia and Qatar. (kbp)
