The Association of British Language Schools was founded in 1993 by a group of English language providers interested in developing a quality marque which could offer choice and recognise diversity in English language provision. The Association has maintained the specific aim of promoting quality, professionalism and expertise in the field of English language tuition. All member schools must be accredited by a Home Office recognised accreditation body. ABLS is attractive to small, private, family run type schools. Members are encouraged to get involved in major policy making decisions, exchange information, share ideas and be supportive of each other. This friendly representative organisation is growing!
