Global Partnership between LanguageCert and IH

Published Bernice on Friday, January 18, 2019

We are delighted to announce a new global partnership between International House World Organisation and Language Cert. This Memorandum of Understanding will give International House schools the opportunity to offer their students a range of innovative and flexible exams.

The Academic Managers and Trainers (AMT) Conference 2019 was the perfect setting for our COO Lucy Horsefield and Henry Tolley, Head of Business Development at LanguageCert, to sign the agreement and celebrate with our colleagues from around the world.

This is what Henry Tolley had to say: “International House is a leading brand of schools, abiding by the highest standards in language education, which LanguageCert values greatly. We are excited at the opportunity of working with IH across all the different countries, and offer unparalleled on-demand exam flexibility, also shortening the time window from registration to certification, which make exams feasible even for one week or two-week courses.”

Janet Golding, Academic Support Consultant at Language Cert, said: “The exams can be taken by all age groups in all types of settings, so they are very flexible and we give plenty of support, both academic and operational.”

Henry Tolley added: “Schools think differently about their businesses and are also looking at areas other than language education, so we are offering them the opportunity to differentiate and expand their businesses by adding I.T. and Business training and examinations. This is something they had no access to and haven’t done before, so we can give them value-adding alternatives to what they are already doing”.

IH COO Lucy Horsefield commented: “LanguageCert is an excellent partner for the IH network. Everyday our schools strive to offer a high quality, personalised language learning service to their students that will help them achieve their academic, work or travel goals. LanguageCert has a similar commitment to quality and innovation and the exams are very flexible so they complement our offer perfectly.
