We offer academic English courses at schools in the UK and North America and routes to Higher Education through partnerships with universities across the UK, Europe, and the United States.

In recent years we have spearheaded digital innovation and growth through our Digital Institute, which delivers online and hybrid academic and vocational courses taught by accredited and experienced teachers.

Our educational portfolio is diverse and is centred around providing opportunity for international students to build academic qualifications, skills, and intercultural experiences. We deliver our products digitally, in face-to-face locations across the world, or even in hybrid mode.

We are quality focused, with a strong desire to lead in our market sectors. We are dedicated, enthusiastic and like-minded, with a genuine interest in what we do. Our values are at the heart of our business and have been since we started 29 years ago – they are the secret of our success.
