Agents Speak Out
What has a school done that has impressed you the most this year?
Assiya Zemlekhanova
Euroschool agency, Kazakhstan
"Euroschool agency has a good bunch of valued partners, but in this article I would like to specify Brooke House College. We have worked very closely for a good amount of years, and have graduates already with good results. By my own experience, the admission team is very operative. I always get email replies within one hour; Sarah Doye, who is Director of Student Support Services & Admissions, is always online on Skype and supports us from the enquiries beginning from place availability until students' arrival. It is very helpful when school understand the mentality of the countries where students are from and assist you with their needs. Brooke House has a Football Academy, which is very attractive for our students, where they can combine different options as A-levels, 18-month A-levels, GCSE, IGCSE and Foundation, as well as gaining very strong football coaching support. They have professional coaches, and students of the Football Academy participate in championships and have different football training camps, which we think is very unique when student succeed in sport and academically."

See Learning Center, Portugal
"Ardmore Language Schools impressed me and my team at SEE Learning Center with their innovative university summer immersion programme, Redwing Education, which combines an online learning platform for language preparation before, during and after the course with 'Uni-Life' - a university-style group project work that gives students a real taste of life at prestigious UK and US universities, while providing valuable opportunities for authentic language practice. My team and I at SEE Learning Center admired Ardmore's flexibility and professionalism, especially this year. In the wake of terrible London tragedies they completely rearranged planned London excursions to visit Warwick Castle instead and when one cohort was faced with relentless rainy days, they added an extra morale booster excursion to the Wallace Monument."

Global Active Study, UK
"In all ILSC schools the students can choose what to study according to their level and interests to create their own unique learning path to achieve their goals. There are many options in areas like communication, academic, business, exam and university preparation and creative English. Each session lasts for four weeks and the students can choose different subjects and courses every time they start a new session, so the learning is dynamic and never boring. This innovative approach is great for our students and as soon as we explain how the system works, they feel confident they will progress quickly."

TWIST Spain, Spain
"I have been working with Emerald Cultural Institute for almost six years now. Their programmes are all inclusive and they are very flexible to all our special requests. I personally travel with one of my group of juniors and have been in their residential centres in Dublin and Cobham. I especially love the space and role they allow our group leaders to develop, supporting their job and getting the most out of it. Working in collaboration with a school that not only fulfils our client's requests but also understands the way we deal with juniors is paramount and an added value we really appreciate."
