Quality English (QE) recently welcomed IH Cape Town as its latest licensee. The school, based in South Africa joins over 60 other independent EFL schools around the world in carrying the QE logo.
IH Cape Town is conveniently located in the heart of the city, offering visitors the ideal location from which to explore the amazing tourist attractions, socialise with fellow students and experience the local culture. In addition, IH Cape Town has an active social programme, and offers a variety of tours and accommodation options.
Speaking about the addition of the school to the QE network, QE Chief Executive, Jonathan Swindell commented:
“I have known the Directors (Gavin and Ilse) for quite some time through their work representing South Africa (SA) at the Global Alliance of Education and Language Associations (GAELA), where I represent QE. I have always been impressed by their professionalism and their commitment to promoting SA as a destination for study travel. When they chose to apply to join, I was privileged to have the opportunity to visit the school and carry out our quality control process.
The school is bright, well-located and comfortable, whilst all the staff are extremely welcoming and friendly. They maintain high academic standards alongside the huge variety of exciting activities they offer. IH Cape Town, with its focus on the needs of individual students, has a true QE feel to it. And its location, in one of the most scenic cities in the world, is very desirable to students from all over the world. We very much look forward to working with Gavin, Ilse and the team and welcoming them to our forthcoming Missions!”
When asked why the school decided to apply to join QE, Owner and Director, Gavin Eyre commented:
“Being a boutique, independently owned and managed school, we sought a marketing partner with the same qualities and outlook. We found this with Quality English. The team at QE are dynamic and professional and are in constant contact with us regarding marketing opportunities.
The missions QE organize are well thought out regarding markets and trends and offer us, as IH Cape Town, the ability to engage with markets that would be difficult for us.
The feeling of a small family is evident in the QE fold, and we look forward to interacting with Quality Agents on the upcoming missions in Brazil and the Czech Republic. The superb organization of the missions is paramount to making the events worthwhile, given the time restraints upon both schools and agents.
We look forward to meeting all the QE schools and Quality agents in the coming year.”
QE will be attending ALPHE UK in early September as well as ICEF Berlin in November. In between those events, QE will be hosting Missions to Bogota and Sao Paolo. Following ICEF, QE will host a Mission to Prague before Rome and its 20th Anniversary Mission to Madrid at the end of November.
