Eaquals is a world leader in accreditation for language teaching organisations and our accreditation is the gold standard for language centres and a highly-respected badge of excellence. Eaquals has been accrediting quality language education since its foundation in 1991. The Eaquals Inspection Scheme has been successfully applied hundreds of times, and has been refined to ensure that it is thorough, practical and fair. Eaquals accreditation is designed to be relevant to all types of language teaching organisations and applies to the teaching of all languages. We accredit both private and state-run centres and we operate in any country.
Eaquals runs three inspection schemes:
The Eaquals Inspection Scheme Version 7.2 is aimed at language schools, foreign language departments of mainstream education schools and corporate training centres.
The Eaquals Inspection Scheme for Higher Education is designed to accredit university language centres and language departments which offer language training programmes to undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students.
The Eaquals Inspection Scheme for Online Providers is addressed at language centres which offer online language training programmes delivered synchronously, asynchronously or both. Language courses offered by Online Providers must include a significant proportion of tutor moderation and student interaction in addition to online content. The Scheme does not apply to language centres which offer face-to-face tuition in addition to online or blended courses. They are accredited under 7.2 Version of the Inspection Scheme.
