PeopleCert, a global leader in the certification industry that delivers millions of exams in over 180 countries has developed the next generation of English Language Certificates; LanguageCert International ESOL.


LanguageCert International ESOL is a suite of English language qualifications designed for communication purposes, for study or work anywhere in the world. The introduction of LanguageCert International ESOL qualifications was made at the hospitable premises of the British Ambassador’s residence in Athens last September, in front of an audience comprising of Foreign Language School Owners, DOS of private schools, teachers, examiners and publishers.


The evening opened with Andrew Staunton, Deputy Head of Mission, who welcomed guests at the beautifully designed garden of the British Ambassador’s residence. Byron Nicolaides, Chairman and CEO of PeopleCert followed on the podium and briefed the audience on the activities of PeopleCert, on its achievements and the projects which are under way focusing specifically on the suite of LanguageCert International ESOL qualifications. The new qualifications cover all ages and levels from A1 to C2 Level, have been developed by a group of experts including Mike Milanovic, Chairman of LanguageCert’s Advisory Council & Member of its Board of Directors (former CEO of Cambridge English Language Assessment) and Nigel Pike, Member of LaguageCert’s Advisory Council (former Director of Assessment at Cambridge English Language Assessment) and are targeted at an international candidateship. More LanguageCert qualifications will be developed and offered in many other languages. The qualification in the Spanish languages which has been developed by the University of Salamanca is ready and covers all CEFR levels.


The Qualifications in English, which are regulated by Ofqual (Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) and are recognised by ASEP, will be administered 11 times per year in Athens and 4 times per year in other towns in Greece.


PeopleCert also delivers the IELTS exams in Greece, Cyprus and Germany and as of January 2018 will exclusively administer worldwide the AXELOS Global Best Practice Examinations.
