ELS Language Centres (ELS) has been conducting quality English language proficiency programmes since 1990. Subsequently, ELS Kuala Lumpur was upgraded to college-status and renamed Premier College to address the need for competent English language teachers. To this end, a teacher training programme leading to the TESOL Certificate course was started ten years ago and since then, many effective English language teachers have been trained. In 2012, the ELS Diploma in TESOL was launched to train more English language teachers. Today Premier College is at a stage where it aspires to be a regional English language teacher education centre.
While the ELS’ TESOL Certificate course is validated by ELS US, our Diploma in TESOL is fully accredited by the MQA. Teacher education and training in ELT is conducted by teaching personnel who are well qualified, competent and experienced. Personalised instruction and small classes ensure that students receive sufficient coaching, attention and support. The ELS Certified Intensive English Programme (CIEP) classes comprising international students that run concurrently with TESOL programmes provide authentic contexts for classroom observation and practical teaching. For those who wish to give back to society, an opportunity is built into the programme for community service.
