“We like recommending QE schools to our students for their guaranteed quality standards and high level of personal attention. QE is a famous brand, and more and more students trust this trade mark and find their courses, schools and agents on the QE web-site. So, for us it is not only quality assurance and reliable business partners, but also another opportunity to recruit students.” Anastassia Romanenko, Insight-Lingua, Russia - a Quality English Agent
“We work with QE partner schools because we know that these schools are committed to delivering a full quality service. Here in Switzerland we are used to high quality and fast feedback – this is what we expect and get from our quality English partners. I personally like to talk directly to the owner of a language school, to be able to plan, decide and react immediately to what the market and students need. We have been dealing with some of the Quality English schools for years and the contact person remains the same and as the business development is in the owners own personal interest, long lasting strong and efficient relationships can be build up, which is good for the Quality English school, for us as an agent and especially it is in the students benefit and interest.” Claudio Cesarano, Globo-Study, Switzerland - a Quality English Agent
“When I met the schools last year I was delighted to learn about the basic philosophy of the organization. I could see that (it) totally matches the one I had already in mind when I started my independent agency in 1992 and where my students are valued as individuals; and of course, the right school for the right student´s goals; the prompt reply to the requests for information; providing support to solve doubts make me feel comfortable in the placement process. So, since then, the QE brochure and the promotional materials of the schools are always at hand when I assist a student looking for courses. It is my first offer… our goals match and it helps me a lot to keep my search for excellence when selling courses.” Derlene Calpacci, Didacta, Brazil - a Quality English Agent
