The London School of English Canterbury (previously trading as Canterbury Language Trading) is accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English as a foreign language. To obtain accreditation, the school must comply with strict regulations relating to school premises and facilities, teacher qualifications, teaching quality, administration and welfare. We are regularly visited by their inspectors.

After our most recent inspection the British Council summarised their report as follows:

The British Council inspected and accredited Canterbury Language Training in November. The Accreditation Scheme assesses the standards of management, resources and premises, teaching and welfare and accredits organisations which meet the overall standard in each area inspected (see www.britishcouncil.org/accreditation for details).

This private language school offers professional English for adults.

Points of excellence were noted in course design and aspects of welfare.

The inspection report stated that the organisation met the standards of the Scheme.
