Study Travel Star Awards confer yet another award nomination on EC

EC has been nominated in the ST Star ‘Chain School’ category.

The Star Awards for Internatio­nal Education are organised by Language Travel Magazine, the leading internatio­nal language industry publicatio­n distribute­d to tens of thousands of profession­als in more than 100 countries. Monthly issues provide a comprehens­ive insight into all aspects of the language training and travel industry.

The awards, now in their 11th year, ‘recognise organisati­ons excellence in business performanc­e’. All entries are voted for by hundreds of agents, who place confidenti­al votes for their preferred choice from hundreds of language schools and educationa­l centres worldwide.

Michael Xuereb, Chief Executive Officer for EC, commented on the nomination, saying: “The ST Star Chain School award remains the industry’s most recognised award for groups such as ourselves who have schools in multiple destinatio­ns.

“The winners will be announced on 3 September at the Study Travel Awards ceremony and I’m very hopeful that EC will be going up to collect the award. Winning this prestigiou­s accolade for a second time – we had won this award in 2011, would be a great way to help us celebrate our 25th anniversar­y in style.”

“EC are continual innovators despite global challenges that our industry has faced over the past couple of years; I’m certain ST Star Awards will recognise this, which in turn gives us a great chance of securing the big prize,” Mr Xuereb added.
