Read all about Ingla School of English's accreditations, ensuring that we are a qualified English school that provides quality teaching for adults in London, and online around the world!
The British Council is the UK’s international organisation that creates cultural relationships and sets educational standards for English schools around the world.
British Council’s purpose is to make sure that an English school is of a high quality and effective in the way it teaches English, and that they are friendly and fair to students. Your country probably has British Council accredited schools where you can study English. In the UK, schools with British Council accreditation can help students get visas to enter the country as a student.
Ingla is a British Council accredited school. We go through a full British Council inspection every four years (with surprise visits in between!) to make sure that all our lessons, teachers, management and safety procedures are effective and up-to-date. One thing they check is whether every teacher has a university degree and a CELTA certificate. CELTA is Cambridge English’s qualification for teaching English as a foreign language, and is the most respected certificate in this field.
The British Council also checks if we are honest and fair in the way we deal with students. Do we give students good information about courses, class times and visas before they start studying at Ingla? Do we give true and accurate prices? Do we explain to students how our school runs? Do we take care of our students’ mental, physical, and social welfare and show them everything that London has to offer? (- Yes!)
At Ingla, we aim to do all these things and give our students a world-class education in English. The British Council helps us reach these goals.

Ingla is a proud member of English UK.
This is a membership organisation for accredited English-language schools whose purpose is to help our sector develop and become better. English UK works with agents, students, governments, global organisations and more to make sure that English schools in the UK are the best they can be. They regularly provide help, advice, support and training for its member schools.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, English UK has given advice to Ingla, and other member schools around the UK, training on how to teach English effectively online, guidance on how to re-open our school in a way that is safe for students and staff, and has asked the British government to help EFL schools during this crisis. Being a part of English UK has made Ingla a better, more professional place to learn English.
The Trinity GESE and ISE Exams are some of the most important language exams in the UK. Trinity’s exams are SELTs (Secure English Language Tests) which are accepted by the United Kingdom’s Border Agency for visas and British citizenship, as well as TfL (Transport for London) for private hire car drivers (Uber).
Ingla is proud to be one of only eight centres in London to be an official Trinity Exam Preparation Centre. This means that Trinity has given us their stamp of approval and thinks we’re a great school to help students prepare for their GESE and ISE exams. Trinity offers Ingla support in the form of guidance and materials for preparation. Several of Ingla’s teachers have even been to Trinity’s headquarters for training on how to successfully prepare students for their Trinity exams.
This shows in the fact that more than 90% of people who prepare for the Trinity Exams at Ingla achieve a Pass and get the certificate they need. Choose Ingla when you want to prepare for a Trinity exam. We have a track record of success and we’re an official Trinity Preparation Centre. You’re in good hands with us!
