The British Council Award

One of our achievements that deserves special mention is our selection as runner up in the British Council Award for the Effective Transfer of English Language Skills in 2001. This Award forms part of the International Worldware Business Awards Programme.
The judges commented:
“We were struck by ELET’s vision for education in South Africa, which is guided by the values of access, equity, redress, tolerance and justice. Following these principles, ELET has been able to respond creatively and effectively to the education needs expressed by the local communities in the poorest depths of the country.
“The Trust has deservedly won respect and recognition within the public sector, and is to be congratulated for its persistent dedication to increasing the standards of English teaching throughout the country. There is little doubt that it’s work has made a real difference to thousands of teachers and students, spanning the social and income divide. “
