We are thrilled to announce the signing of MoUs with two agent associations: ABELIO (Belgium) and UED (Turkey). These new partnerships aim to strengthen relationships between QE schools and the agent members of these associations.
QE now has partnerships in place with ten agent associations from all over the world with whom we enjoy productive and effective relationships as we share the same aims of promoting high-quality tuition and support to students.
The new agreements encourage mutual promotion of our organisations to promote awareness of QE schools in these key markets whilst also raising awareness of the work that these associations do to regulate and support their members.
Speaking about this news, QE Chief Executive, Jonathan Swindell commented:
“We are delighted to sign these MoUs with ABELIO and UED. Both associations share our desire to introduce some of the best independent EFL schools (and colleges teaching academic and vocational courses in English) with some of the best agents in Belgium and Turkey. We look forward to long and mutually beneficial relationships which will include joint events and presentations to each other’s members.”
Pascal Carré, President of ABELIO added:
"In difficult times, it is essential to come together, build bridges, help each other, schools and agencies. It is also particularly important to continue communicating, to occupy the stage. For these reasons, the recently signed MoU between Quality English and Abelio is "essential". High quality of offering and services on both sides of the scene will guarantee the perennity of our businesses. Working together makes so much more sense, making our clients aware of the best English language schools and providers around the world will reinforce our cooperation and make us stand out once the storm is over and for long.
Making our members better aware of the efficient QE e-missions, promoting our partnership on our social media and websites naturally help us to grow our brands and make our respective members proud of their membership and appreciative of the brought added value. Long live our partnership!"
Ms Aslihan, President of UED commented:
"As most of our partner schools surely know, the Turkish market is dominated by ESL (English as a Second Language) seeking students. As a matter of fact, 80% of Turkish students who want to study a foreign language abroad, want English programs. Therefore, the quality, professionalism and dedication to business ethics of our partner schools is critical for the satisfaction of our students and our success.
As the Covid spread showed us, the level of co-operation between the schools and agencies is also important in order to overcome these difficult times. Therefore, we also believe that this MOU will encourage both parties to better understand each other in order to jointly face the difficulties our times.
