FELTOM Accreditation

An Introduction to the FELTOM Accreditation Scheme

FELTOM introduced its Accreditation Scheme in 2006,with the aim of establishing the pinnacle of quality for ELT schools and services in Malta.

The program, overseen by the FELTOM Accreditation Council, serves as a quality assurance initiative, in which English Language Schools undergo audits, to ensure their compliance with the standards set by FELTOM. In addition, the Council is also responsible for appointing qualified and impartial inspectors to conduct said audits for both main schools and annexes, and to determine the outcome of these observations.

FELTOM Accreditation Scheme Lifecycle

The Accreditation process which is held once every three years, with review visits happening in the interim period, establishes quality standards in six main areas, namely:

  • Leadership and Management;
  • Learning and Teaching;
  • Student Welfare, including Accommodation;
  • Premises and Facilities;
  • Recruitment of Learners;
  • Care of Minors.

FELTOM Accreditation Process

For schools to be accredited members of FELTOM, they must go through a rigorous application process, followed by inspections carried out by academic and educational professionals. By successfully completing the process, the schools not only commit to meeting and maintaining the required standards, but attain the prestigious FELTOM accreditation mark, which is a globally recognised mark of excellence within the ELT industry.

The Accreditation Scheme sets standards to ensure that:

Management will commit to ongoing enhancement and refinement for the benefit of students.
