ESL Certificate of Excellence

The ESL Certificate of Excellence is one way for you to know that a school offers students a first-class experience.

What is the ESL Certificate of Excellence?
The ESL Certificate of Excellence recognises schools that consistently deliver a high quality service. Only schools that have obtained excellent reviews from our students throughout the year receive this recognition.

In October, we analyse the results of the previous year’s satisfaction surveys and assign the excellence certificates for the following year. The Excellence Certificate’s logo appears on the profile of each awarded school.
