British Council inspection highlights IH London strengths

Accreditation UK British Council English UK

The British Council recommended continued accreditation for International House London and highlighted several strengths, including quality assurance and premises and facilities, following a recent inspection.

Accreditation UK is a voluntary scheme for providers of English Language teaching (ELT) services in the UK run by the British Council and English UK. The scheme aims to give international students a marker of the quality of teaching services they can expect when choosing to learn English in the UK.

They achieve quality assurance by carrying out school inspections every 4 years, with random interim visits in between.  The Scheme sets standards in four areas: Management, Resources and environment, Teaching and learning, and Welfare and student services.

International House London was inspected between the 3rd and 6th of June 2013. Inspectors found that the school met their standards in all four areas and recommended continued accreditation under the Accreditation UK Scheme.

In addition, the inspectors noted strengths in the areas of staff management, student administration, quality assurance, premises and facilities, learning resources, academic management, care of students and leisure opportunities.
