Kaplan London school repositions for 25+ age group

Kaplan Leicester Square is repositioning itself as a “preferred centre” for the over-25 year old English language learner market in London, according to The PIE (Professionals in International Education) News.

London English language school, Kaplan Leicester Square, is repositioning itself as a “preferred centre” for the over-25 year old market, citing an increase in demand from professionals and older learners in the UK capital.

Learners at the centre will enjoy studying alongside a higher number of students of a similar age and background and will have classes and some social programme options that cater for a more mature student population who want a stronger academic focus and business networking opportunities.

It has also launched a new Professional English Class programme offering academic and business English.

“We are seeing growing demand for English language programmes with a stronger academic focus for more mature students which is surprisingly untapped,” Craig Sargent, Principal of Kaplan International Colleges, London Leicester Square told The PIE News.

“In response to this demand, Kaplan is tailoring classes according to age, experience and interests.”

The social side of the programme will include tours of the Bank of England and Houses of Parliament as well as cultural trips to the theatre, opera and the ballet; and wine tasting sessions.
