British Council Award

Award Winners


We are the only current English Language School in the world to receive a British Council ELTons Award for Local Innovation!

The ELTons are the only international awards that recognise and celebrate innovation in English language teaching (ELT). The awards are held in high esteem by the ELT community and the award ceremony is considered a must attend event for ELT professionals.

This is an incredibly important award and since we have the incredibly important PALS scheme at Country Cousins, we decided to enter in 2014!

The judges said the scheme is ‘a worthy project that is very effective’. Subsequently we work to maintain the brilliance of PALS, recruiting new local teenagers on a yearly basis to ensure local children have the opportunity to meet our wonderful students, and our students have the opportunity to truly become part of the English community.

Take a look at the PALS scheme here.
