New members for language school groups

ihwo-ialc-logos.jpgThe PIE (Professionals in International Education) News reports on some new member recently joining two of the major international language school networks.

Both International House World Organisation (IHWO) and the International Association of Language Centres (IALC) have grown to add new language schools to their membership bases this month.

IHWO has added three new locations to its global network bringing its membership total up to 156 schools. Formerly part of inlingua, IH Manchester will be the organisation’s 9th location in the UK. It has been accredited by the British Council and part of English UK since 2009.

“We are now delighted to announce that having undergone the rigorous application process and pre-affiliation inspection our Manchester school has been accepted in to IHWO,” said IH Manchester Directors Peter Hayes and Michael Brennan. “We feel that IHWO’s commitment to quality and innovation in teaching perfectly fits our own values.”

Other new recruits include IH Zurich-Baden which has been focusing on adult and company programmes in a number of languages including German, English and Japanese since 1988. And, previously a part of EF, IH Stavropol is the first IH school in southern Russia and the biggest private language school in the city.

“We are very happy to be welcoming these three quite different schools to our network. It reflects very well on the International House brand that good quality schools are choosing to leave other groups and join us,” said Lucy Horsefield, Chief Operating Officer of IHWO.
