Our purpose is to create international opportunities for the people of Cameroon and other countries citizens’ resident in Cameroon and build trust between them by teaching them a new language making it easy for them to integrate fully in life’s activities and bringing them closer to international qualifications.
The International Language and Education Center (ILEC) Yaounde was created in January 2014 taking over from the British Language Centre created by British teachers and their Cameroonian colleagues. We work in three key areas: Languages, education and professional development.
Our work in English supports the local Cameroon’s population through English language courses. Teaching other languages like German helps prepare Cameroonian students for international universities across the world. In the field of Education, we offer University Pathways there by significantly reducing the cost of UK and other international qualifications for example, a student can do level 1 and 2 of foreign University studies with us at less than 15% the cost of studying abroad. We also offer professional national and international diplomas as we are accredited by MINEFOP (www.minefop.cm
), ATHE (www.athe.co.uk
) and ABMA (www.abma.uk.com
Our work is at the heart of Cameroon’s ambitions to develop its young people to be competitive, and to engage internationally in other to achieve the 2035 goal of our beloved fatherland. We support the locals by bringing close to them different study options at home and abroad and also the necessary tools to achieve their dreams.
Retraining the existing work force is very vital and we are working with other partners to ensure that existing professionals can keep hold of their professional competencies while constantly improving to match the changing times.
We have highly qualified teachers and blend them with native speakers in other to bring the best to our students. We use modern teaching methods and our premise is arguably the best in terms of its location and accessibility. In terms of teaching and learning materials, we constantly evolve in bringing updated teaching and learning materials to our students.
