Inspection and accreditation fees have been updated for 2023-24

1. Pre inspection briefing

You can find out more information about briefings on the Inspection support page.

The in person pre-inspection briefing programme is currently suspended. Online briefings will be arranged. Please check Newswire or contact the Unit for more information.

2. Accreditation UK Handbook

A PDF copy of the Handbook is available at the bottom of this page.

3. Inspection costs

The duration of the inspection varies depending on the size your ELT operation. A full fees sheet including example inspection costs is available at the bottom of the page. 

 4. Annual fee

Your annual fee is calculated according to the number of students studying for 10 hours or more per week multiplied by the number of weeks they study.

Here are some examples of the calculation:

10 students x 15 hours per week for 8 weeks. 10 x 8 = 80 student weeks.

5 students x 7 hours per week for 4 weeks = no student weeks. 

A guide to the calculation of student weeks can be found at the bottom of the page.

Accredited centres who are members of English UK pay their annual fee through English UK and benefit from a £100 reduction. Visit the English UK website to find out how to become a member.
