Quality English and Quality Education Events
One of the aims of Quality English and Quality Education is to bring together our schools and colleges with good agents who understand both the needs of students and also the high standards set by our institutions. One of the ways we do this is to run "Fam Trips" which are often three or four day tours of a group of our schools and colleges in a particular area.
These Fam Trips enable the agents to see first-hand the care and attention our schools and colleges pay to providing the highest quality teaching and service to students. You can find out more about our most recent Fam Trips in our blog.
90 missions, 41, cities, 30 countries, over 900 agents from 780 agencies
Our missions (workshops) give Agents/Educational Counsellors the opportunity to have a series of 25 minute face-to-face business meetings with Quality English schools and Quality Education colleges to discuss partnerships and for agents to find out more about our international educators’ centres, programmes, locations, fees and services.
Schools and colleges meet Agents in their home country at these small, specialised workshops. Unlike the global ‘mega-workshops’, here educators and agents alike can have productive meetings in calm and congenial surroundings, conducive to building and reinforcing successful partnerships.

A typical day includes face to face meetings (pre-booked though Marcom) and an introduction to QE and QED presented by Frances Pottshculte. Agents are always invited to join the schools and colleges for lunch at the venue, which is a local and conveniently located hotel.
The majority of representatives at the Missions are the school Principals or Directors. This is because they take an active part in marketing their schools to agents. They are also directly involved in the day-to-day running of the school so are the best people to talk to.
Cities in which Quality English and Quality Education has run missions, from 2004 to 2016, are:
Rome (5), Milan (4), Madrid (5), Barcelona (3), San Sebastian (1), Moscow (4), Germany (4 centres), Budapest (2), Bratislava, Prague (3), Istanbul (3), Izmir, Zagreb, Ljubljana, Bogotá (3), Mexico City (2), Tokyo (2), Kyiv (2), Warsaw (2), Almaty (2), Baku, Taipei (2) Bangkok (2), Brazil - Sao Paulo (3), Curitiba, Porto Alegre, Belo Horizonte, Paris (3), Zurich (2), Santiago, Buenos Aires (2), Dubai (2), Beijing, Lima and Quito.
Education fairs and workshops
We also regularly attend industry events such as Alphe, StudyWorld and ICEF where we and our schools and colleges meet with agents from all over the world to introduce them to Quality English and Quality Education and what it means for a school or college to carry our logo. At such fairs, our schools are grouped together in the QE & QEd Village so that agents can instantly recognise that these schools are meeting the high standards of QE/QEd. Find out where we have been recently and where we're going next in our blog.
