You can see the quality of our friendly academy from our official British Council report. We are also accredited by IALC and have received nominations for both local and national awards.
Celtic English Academy is accredited by the British Council, which gives an assurance of quality to international students who are studying or planning to study English language in the UK. British Council inspections ensure that providers that are accredited through the scheme meet agreed quality standards.
The British Council inspected and accredited Celtic English Academy in June 2016. The Accreditation Scheme assesses the standards of management, resources and premises, teaching, welfare, and care of under 18s and accredits organisations which meet the overall standard in each area inspected (see this page for details).
This private language school offers courses in general English for adults (16+) and for closed groups of under 18s, and residential vacation courses for under 18s.
Strengths were noted in the areas of staff management, student administration, academic management, teaching, care of students, and leisure opportunities.
The inspection report stated that the organisation met the standards of the Scheme.
We are accredited under the IALC quality scheme which expects all its members to provide an excellent teaching service and show a genuine passion for language study abroad.
