Application Process

Who can apply

Eaquals accreditation is designed to be relevant to all types of language teaching organisations and applies to the teaching of all languages. Eaquals runs three inspection schemes, operates in any country and accredits a wide range of language centres both private and state-run:

  • language schools
  • corporate training centres
  • university language centres
  • foreign language departments of mainstream education schools
  • providers of online programmes

The first inspection of a language centre can be organised after the centre has been offering language services for a minimum of 24 months. The period is shorter for members of groups of schools if at least one member of the group is already accredited by Eaquals. It is 6 or 12 months on depending on whether the group has a centralised management  and academic systems
