Defining Excellence in Language Acquisition For Professional Purposes


ALAP (Awarding Language Acquisition for Professionals) is a UK based awarding organisation specialising in the accreditation of courses in English for specific professional purposes.

You can rest assured that any training provider approved to offer ALAP accredited courses has passed a stringent approval process involving assessment of both the training provider and the content of courses leading to ALAP accredited Certificates and Diplomas.

As an employer, you can be sure that the holder of these awards has reached a level of achievement that guarantees they will be able to communicate effectively in English at the level required for their work, as measured against a structured framework.

Until now, the acquisition of sector specific language has been largely unregulated and so actual standards of English for communication in international business can be lower than might be expected.  Our aim is for our awards to become synonymous with highly trained and effective employees who use English for work purposes.

In order for ALAP to maintain this trust and brand recognition we maintain rigorous rules of accreditation and course delivery.  All centres must adhere to these rules and are externally moderated on an ongoing basis.
