What is FELTOM?

Set-up in 1989, FELTOM is Malta’s Federation of English Language Teaching Organisations, bringing together all accredited English language schools under one national association. Its main aim is to advance the quality of English language education to international learners in Malta.

Mission Statement

The objective of FELTOM is to set, improve, and ensure the maintenance of standards in, and direct the development of, all aspects and services which together constitute the requisites of an English language stay in Malta and to develop cooperation amongst licensed English Language Schools and strengthen the role of Malta as a destination for English language stays of quality.

Accreditation | Being a FELTOM-accredited English language school means having a seal of quality since all member schools must successfully pass a rigorous and stringent accreditation process. FELTOM also seeks to set quality standards in all other aspects related to learners’ stay in Malta.

Lobbying | FELTOM develops co-operation between its 20 member schools to safeguard and bring forward the industry’s interests. Through lobbying with a number of partners, including Government bodies, foreign agents and other stakeholders, FELTOM brings further development of the TEFL sector in Malta. In fact, the world’s first law regulating English language schools was introduced by FELTOM

Marketing | FELTOM not only participates in some of the world’s more important annual fairs but it also hosts its annual Malta Workshop as well as various events for learners. It also contributes to the development of teaching professionals through workshops and conferences as well as industry networking events

FELTOM Board & Executive

FELTOM’s Annual General Meeting, usually held in the three months of the year, appoints a Board which is responsible for determining the policies and budgets of the Federation. FELTOM also has an Independent Accreditation Council responsible for implementing the Accreditation scheme.
