Earlier this month, IEP provdiers gathered at the second annual English USA stakeholders conference where dialogue centred around sector-wide growth that is being driven by quality control and major expansion into pathway programmes.
The role of agents, technology in language teaching and dynamic pricing dominated ALTO's professional development conference in New York last month. The two-day event brought forward debates about the changing demand for face-to-face learning and offered members access to Daniel Sieberg, author and Head of Media Outreach at Google.
The recent IEP Stakeholders Conference revealed that the rush to meet the accreditation deadline of December 15 has meant significant workload for quality assurance agencies and IEPs themselves. The process has been largely positive, and SEVP is engaging with the sector on further regulatory reform.
