English studies information update 4: Inspectorate work and accreditation

No votes yet

Published in 1990, the overall theme of this in-house British Council publication is quality assurance of language provision, a topic which was at that time gaining increasing prominence in ELT.

This update was designed to raise ‘current awareness’ among British Council staff and it covers inspectorate work and the accreditation of English language teaching in the UK and overseas, and at different levels, from private language schools to state colleges of further education and academic contexts. One theme is the use of performance indicators as a way of providing evidence of quality. Key organisations and accrediting bodies, inspection methods, a British Council code of practice, training provision for inspectors, and information materials are also considered.
