In order to get an Eaquals certification, an institution needs an on-site inspection, where the team verifies that all necessary criteria are met. This same process is repeated, every two years, to guarantee the quality of teaching.
What are the key elements of an Eaquals inspection?
- Teaching observations and other academic activities;
- Course review, evaluation, and certification;
- Review of academic documentation and other management records;
- Meetings with staff, managers and teachers;
- Meetings with students;
- Verification of facilities, learning resources, facilities and accommodation, when applicable.
Eaquals also offers practical guidance and support to all language teachers in the quest to raise standards of education in the education sector.
Accredited members can be language centers that offer courses in any language. Eaquals certifies private and public institutions in all countries. Only schools that meet all quality requirements can be accredited and display the logo.
All member schools of Eaquals are able to offer their students high international standards of teaching as they are always committed to continuous improvement of their methodology.
