Welcome to LanguageCert!
The Next Generation in English language qualifications.

LanguageCert is an Awarding Organisation offering internationally recognised language skills assessment and certification. It is a member of PeopleCert, a global leader in the certification industry, delivering millions of exams in 200 countries.

We partner with the best. So that we bring out the best in you.

LanguageCert uses state-of-the-art, innovative and award-winning exam administration technologies and systems. It partners with the biggest brands in education, including universities, international language school associations and quality language schools.

We’re really Next-Gen. With a really long heritage.

The origins of LanguageCert can be traced back to the Pitman Examinations Institute and City & Guilds of London in the 1800’s! In 2015, LanguageCert acquired the intellectual property of City & Guilds ESOL International qualifications, reviewed, updated, modernised and launched them to the world.

We revolutionise English. One exam at a time!

LanguageCert offers flexibility, by separating the four language skills into more than one exam. You can take the exams for all four skills together or just the exam you’re ready to ace and get a certificate valid for life just for that. Then you can focus on another exam. Your results will be available in 3 business days along with an e-certificate & digital badge. Awesome!
