About us

During this time, over 90% of the work that has been involved in has been with personnel whose first language is not English. In one recent accreditation project alone, we needed to take account of 8 separate Asian languages when carrying out our accreditation work. Thus, over 10 years plus, the majority of materials and documentation designed, developed and accredited has been geared specifically to those who use English as a second or foreign language.

As a result of our lengthy experience gained in accrediting international courses with an extensive ELT content, and accrediting Training companies, we now feel that we should also offer this accreditation service to independent TEFL/TESOL Providers who are willing to meet the high accreditation standards set by ACCRIN. You can view the ACCRIN Standards on the Standards and Evidence page.

However, as you explore this site, you will see that we offer more than just accreditation. ACCRIN, though a separate division, follows the same ethos as : customer experience excellence in a lifelong partnership. And it has access to extensive knowledge and skills bank. Thus, we can add a number of important benefits that other accreditation companies cannot, as you will see as you read further through this site.


Tom Grenan, Learning and Development Advisor: After teaching English for several years in a secondary school in Scotland, Tom spent over 6 years teaching English and teacher training in Africa on a British Government aid scheme. During this time he was also a moderator of the Cambridge examinations for the Zambian Government. This was followed by another 4 years of TEFL/TESOL in Europe and Asia. After working in the business learning and development area for several years, he has spent the last 10 years accrediting international business courses and modules with a large ELT content, written in English but specifically developed for personnel where English is not their first language. Tom’s mix of skills and experience enables him to contribute in-depth to any area of TEFL/TESOL and Training accreditation.
