It is with great pride that I would like to present the first ever FELTOM school directory. Here we will showcase our Accredited Member Schools and what they have to offer to the international language student, that chooses the Maltese Islands as their destination to study English. As CEO I feel great satisfaction in being part of this ever-growing industry. To interact with the 20 exceptionally run member schools, that strive on a daily basis, to provide quality & value for the students that choose to come to Malta to learn English. In 2017, the ELT industry in Malta has recorded a total of 87,190 student arrivals, coming from over 27 different countries.
FELTOM member schools amount to 85% of this total figure, which estimate to 10.4% of the national recorded bed nights, thus giving a high contribution to the Maltese Economy. This year we are expecting these numbers to increase even further since Malta is celebrating Valletta 2018 – i.e.Valletta as the European Capital City of Culture.
What is FELTOM? FELTOM (Federation of English Language Teaching Organisations Malta) was founded by ten established English language schools in 1989. Its founding members foresaw the potentional of the ELT industry in Malta and established this self- regulating, non-profit organisation, dedicated to promoting professionalism within the English language teaching industry by setting and maintaining standards in every aspect of a language stay. Mission Statement The objective of FELTOM is to set, improve and ensure the maintenance of standards in, and direct the development of, all aspects and services which together constitute the requisites of an English language stay in Malta and to develop cooperation amongst licensed English Language Schools and strengthen the role of Malta as a destination for English language stays of quality.
FELTOM’s board had developed the 3 main purposes for this federation; ● Marketing & Promotion ● Advocacy ● Accreditation Marketing and Promotion FELTOM works hard to promote Malta as a safe, professional, quality destination for English language learning whilst promoting the choice of FELTOM accredited schools. FELTOM undertakes ongoing marketing campaigns which include participation in some of the most prominent international marketing fairs & workshops.These events enable FELTOM to network and build relationships with international agents and associations, who are considering Malta as the preferred destination for their clients.
FELTOM has an active communications strategy, producing informative editorials for leading industry publications, both locally and abroad. It also contributes to the development of teaching professionals through workshops and conferences, as well as industry networking events. Advocacy One of the three main pillars of FELTOM’s Mission Statement, is inherent in its operation to lobby and promote legislation and regulations that would seek to safeguard and put forward the interests of the Federation’s 20 member schools. Since inception FELTOM has been on the forefront, advocating of development of Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) sector in Malta, working closely with legislators and officials, including Government bodies, foreign agents and other industry stakeholders.
FELTOM was instrumental in the introduction of the country’s first law regulating English LanguageTeaching. FELTOM has over the years established itself as a valid lobby group whose interest is solely that of seeing the English Language industry grow further and of establishing Malta as a major quality English Language destination. Accreditation FELTOM prides itself for the quality of its member schools and this could not have been possible without the Accreditation Scheme. The Federation has an independent Accreditation Council that assists and monitors its schools in order to ensure they are the best schools available on the island.
This Accreditation Council is chaired by Mr. Jason Azzopardi, who will be elaborating further regarding FELTOM’s accreditation process. 01 FELTOM board 2018 Chairperson: Rebecca Bonnici – BELS Vice Chairperson: Sean Legault – European School of English Board Members: Alex Lanczet – Institute of English Language Studies Ian Scerri – English Language Academy Ingmar Albig – EC Malta Joe Aquilina – Clubclass Residential Language Schools Karl Farrugia Wismayer – Easy School of Languages James Perry CEO FELTOM 01 James Perry.qxp_Layout 1 17/05/2018 08:36 Page 1
The FELTOM Accreditation Scheme As a self-regulating national body, FELTOM has established a set of codes of conduct and standards of service as a mandatory requirement for its members. These are embodied by the FELTOM Accreditation Scheme which was first implemented in 2006.The scheme is administered by the Accreditation Council, a body separate to the other organisational structures within FELTOM, composed of two independent persons, as well as the FELTOM CEO and the chairperson of the FELTOM Board representing the member organisations. This council is responsible to appoint competent and independent inspectors to carry out inspection activities and also decides on the outcome of those inspections.
Becoming an accredited FELTOM member involves a rigorous application process which includes submission of formalised policies and procedures which go through a desk review. This is complemented by a visit by one of the FELTOM inspectors to carry out an audit.This is held during the peak summer period.Full inspections are held once every three years, with review visits held in the interim. FELTOM ACCREDITATION SCHEME LIFE CYCLE Inspectors visit all premises held by the organisation and not just the main school complex.They have the opportunity to witness classroom activities, interview key personnel, check staff qualifications and evaluate the effectiveness of health and safety risk assessments as well as the correct implementation of policies on handling complaints and customer feedback, amongst many other requirements.
In fact, the accreditation process establishes quality standards in six main areas,namely: 1. Leadership and Management The management of the FELTOM member organisation shall operate to the benefit of its students and professional staff in accordance with legal and regulatory compliance.The management will lead the FELTOM member organisation in its quest for continuous quality improvement.
2. Learning and Teaching Academic staff members of the FELTOM member organisation shall have the appropriate knowledge, skills and competencies to deliver courses and assess students effectively in order to optimise outcomes for students. 3. Student Welfare The FELTOM member organisation shall meet the needs of the students for security, pastoral care, information and leisure activities. 4. Premises and Facilities The learning resources and environment shall support and enhance students learning and offer an appropriate professional environment for the teaching staff. 5. Recruitment of Learners The application and enrolment process shall be clear and easy to follow for students and agents.
Promotional material shall be ethical, accurate and consistent. 6. Care of Minors The FELTOM member organisation shall have organisational structures that effectively support the provision of services to minor students, with particular emphasis on their welfare and safety.
The accreditation process allows members to strive to adhere to and continually improve standards and better understand and fulfil the needs of their learners. By successfully going through this process, the FELTOM member, as an accredited organisation, will manifest a commitment to meeting and maintaining quality standards through the use of the FELTOM Accreditation mark, a globally recognised mark of excellence in the ELT sector. 02 Jason Aquilina Chairman FELTOM Accreditation Council 02 Jason Aquilina.qxp_Layout 1 17/05/2018 08:37 Page 1
The mission of the ELT Council for ELT Schools is to foster the ELT Profession and Industry in all its various aspects.
Regulated by means of a legal notice, the industry handles over 80,000 students per year from more than 60 different countries.These students attend lessons and activities at one of the schools licensed by the ELT Council, whose aim is to safeguard Malta’s reputation as a safe and good quality language learning destination. The ELT Council’s mission is to cultivate the country’s ELT sector. ELT in Malta is not just a simple matter of ‘teaching’ English;it is about making sure that students enjoy their stay while learning the language, in lessons delivered by highly competent teachers.The sector ensures that all teachers are well trained, dedicated and professional.
This in turn establishes a high standard that underscores Malta being internationally renowned as a top-quality ELT destination.
The ELT Council’s main duties are licensing ELT Schools, issuing teaching permits, regulating academic and non-academic aspects of a student’s stay, handling quality assurance, and promoting continuing professional development (CPD). First off, teaching permits are issued based on teachers’ academic and professional qualifications; they are only renewed upon confirmation of an applicant’s completion of a specific number of CPD hours. CPD is considered necessary to ensure that teachers are continuously developing their knowledge, skills and beliefs.
The ELT Council’s biggest CPD event of the year is the ELT Malta Conference.
It is an annual event attended by over 300 delegates and it involves the participation of a host of international speakers.The ELT Council organises this event in collaboration with various academic and non-academic entities. The conference opens with a ceremony during which a teacher is given that year’s ‘Inspiring ELT Professional Award’. This is given to teachers who would have done commendable work in their ELT profession by inspiring their peers and motivating their students to embrace the English language.
Finally,quality assurance is a very big part of the ELT Council’s remit. As a regulatory body, it ensures that schools comply with the legal notice and with the Council’s policies, especially when it comes to health and safety. Apart from this, the Council also ensures that only teachers with a valid ELT permit are teaching. Moreover, the constant presence of a Director of Studies is required on site.All of this is meant to provide the best service possible to students visiting Malta. Sue Falzon Chief Executive Officer 03 MALTA TOURISM AUTHORITY The mission of the MaltaTourism Authority is to advance the economic and social activity of tourism to Malta and Gozo, in the national interest, by working with all stakeholders to develop a sustainable industry for current and future generations.

This sunny island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea offers a vast variety of beautiful beaches, a rich history and great food.The Maltese Islands are made up of Malta, Gozo and Comino with a total population of over 400,000 friendly inhabitants occupying an area of only 316 km2. Even though it is small in size, Malta has its own language, Maltese, which is a combination of Arabic, Italian and English influences. However, this is not the only language spoken on these islands; English is an official language making it the ideal ELT destination.
Malta enjoys some of the world’s clearest and most breathtaking waters, therefore also makes it one of the best destinations for diving due to its vast variety of marine life, beautiful reefs and sunken ships. Malta’s capital city is one of the smallest capital cities in Europe.Valletta is rich in both history and culture, making it one of the most picturesque capital cities in the world. Malta is a religious country with Roman Catholicism being the main faith. In fact,The Maltese Islands have 365 churches meaning you can visit one on each day of the year. According to the Bible, St Paul was shipwrecked in Malta whilst travelling on his way to Rome and converted its inhabitants in 60AD.
After the end of WWII, the whole island of Malta and all of its inhabitants were awarded the George Cross medal for their bravery in resisting the constant attacks from the Axis forces. British rule in Malta lasted until 1964 when Malta became independent. The Maltese adapted the British system of administration, education and legislation, therefore reinforcing its place in the ELT Industry.
Traditional Maltese food is rustic and based on the seasons. Maltese cuisine is the result of a long relationship between the Islanders and the many civilisations who occupied the Maltese Islands over the centuries, giving Malta a vast mix of Mediterranean cooking. 05 About Malta?

English Language Academy (ELA) has been established since 1988. This year we are celebrating 30 years of quality English teaching. What sets us apart in the local market is that we are a medium-sized school (max. capacity of 350 students) which operates like a small school.One of our core beliefs is that our students aren’t just customers, but that they’re part of the family. Our ‘family’ atmosphere is extended to students as young as four and with no upper age limit (we’ve even had three generations of the same family taking lessons at the same time!).
This focus on holistic customer care enables us to maintain our reputation as a school that offers that special, personal service and is the reason we have some students returning to us this year for their fifth and sixth visit.
When placing students into classes, we keep our groups small and international, ensuring that everyone receives attention from their teacher and that they get to meet people from all over the world. Every student at the school, as part of their initial placement test, is personally interviewed by either the Director of Studies or the General Manager (who was our previous Director of Studies), ensuring that students are placed into classes with the utmost care.
We offer a large variety of courses for all ages ranging from General English, known as ‘Everyday English’, Business English, Exam Preparation courses,as well as One-To-OneTuition courses such as Personalised General English and Personalised Special English. Our group courses consist of a maximum of eight students in winter and ten in summer, except for business and examination courses where the maximum is six students all year round. Students are placed in groups depending on their level, age and nationality. Package prices for groups, including packages for teenagers and juniors, are also offered, contact us and we can come up with a custom package for your organisation.
As the only officialTOEFL iBT Exam Centre in Malta, we are a school that has always had a good track record with international exam preparation courses. We employ a number of teachers who specialise in these courses, and offer TOEFL, IELTS, and Cambridge English exam preparation courses of the highest quality.

We are committed to offering a broad and varied amount of in-house training to our own teachers, ensuring that our teachers are always equipped to provide engaging lessons.In addition to this,we offer Erasmus+TeacherTraining courses throughout the year, with teachers coming from all over Europe in order to make sure they’re on the cutting edge of academic standards.We also run a number of TEFL Cert.
courses each year,helping people begin their journey into English Language Teaching.
Our teenager summer classes are a maximum of 12 students and we try to keep our teen classes as international and as varied as possible, so that our teen students get to have an unforgettable international adventure. Our SummerTeen Camp, in particular, is gaining popularity each year as we send happy teenagers back to their home countries with the skills and abilities they need to be successful communicators in English.

We also provide a fine selection of self catering apartments solely used for our students, hand- picked host families or low budget hotels generally frequented by students, thus maintaining a student orientated environment. Leisure In 2006 we established another Company called Sunlingua Co. Ltd to tackle all non-academic matters such as Conferences & Incentives, airport transfers, all types of accommodation, excursions, cultural/ leisure/educational activities, sports and events all guaranteed with a gentle dose of fun, amusement and enjoyable experiences in small groups to safeguard top quality stan- dards without going to extremes.
Quality Award Link School proudly achieved the “Quality School Award” by Language Bookings which certifies high quality standards in the range of EFL language courses and student services. This Award represents a symbol of dedication to ensure that our school is a discrimination-free environment for students. Discoveries and Recoveries The ambition of the Board of Directors of Link School is to attract more students to discover past connections between our countries. We also give students the opportunity to learn about our history and unique culture whilst in Malta. Accompanied by our professional team of leaders and guides, students can explore the Maltese Islands through the exciting range of activities.
Our policies are one of enthusiasm and dedication, offering value-added benefits to satisfy students’needs and demands. In 2013 Link School set up and curated the first exhibition totally dedicated to the Maltese artist Amadeo Count Preziosi who lived and painted in Pera (Turkey) from 1842 to 1882 in honour of the 89th Anniversary of the Republic of Turkey. A commem- orative catalogue was published under the auspices of H.E.Mrs.Refika Nihal Cevik the Turkish Ambassador to Malta (sponsored by Link School of English).The following year another exhibition was organised and sponsored by our Companies with a full catalogue exposing the Russian Architect Nikolay Krasnov who lived in Malta from 1919 to 1922.
As a team we are now researching 17th and 18th century material related to connections with Poland, Italy, France and Germany due to be published towards the end of 2019. We look forward to welcome you.
