London, 28 March, 2019
We are very proud to announce that LanguageCert has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Eaquals at the recent LanguageCert “Maximising your Opportunities” event in Dublin on 22nd March.
The LanguageCert portfolio of language qualifications is made available to Eaquals member schools worldwide with the aim of working together to support the teaching and assessment of language skills promoting quality in the field of national and international education services.
Henry Tolley, Business Development Head of LanguageCert commented: “We are very proud to cooperate with such a prestigious organisation as Eaquals, a global expert in international accreditation, quality assurance, training and standardisation. After all, we share the same values: Eaquals works to raise standards in all aspects of language education and LanguageCert in English Language Qualifications! We are excited at the opportunity of working with Eaquals members around the world, and offer unparalleled on-demand exam flexibility, also shortening the time window from registration to certification, which make exams feasible even for one or two-week courses.”
Many Eaquals members are already LanguageCert Approved Test Centres, providing the next generation of language qualifications to their students. LanguageCert offers academic and marketing guidance and support to all Eaquals members joining the big LanguageCert family for the successful delivery of its language qualifications in English, Spanish and Turkish.
