Capital School Accreditations

CAPITAL school accreditations consist of British Council accreditation, English UK membership and Bildingsurlaub recognition.

British Council

British Council accreditation means that we have been inspected and approved as a reliable establishment. The inspection is repeated every four years. The school was last inspected in June 2019 and passed its inspection. The Accreditation Scheme assesses the standards of management, resources and premises, teaching and welfare and accredits organisations which meet the overall standards in each area inspected.

Bildungsurlaub is a scheme in Germany which  allows employees by law to attend courses on special kinds of topics during their working time – up to 5 days per year. To enable this, courses and institutions need to be recognized for Bildungsurlaub. Capital School of English has Bildungsurlaub recognition so to our German speaking friends we say – “Kommen Sie nach Cardiff, um mit uns Englisch zu lernen!”
