Accreditation by Language for Results International (ALFRI) is The Bell Foundation’s accreditation scheme for international schools designed to provide a recognised and trusted stamp of excellence in EAL provision.
The ALFRI scheme supports international schools to evaluate, develop and improve their leadership and educational provision for plurilingual pupils who use English as an Additional Language (EAL). It has a specific specialist focus on improving the learning of plurilingual learners who require English language support and has been designed to supplement general accreditation schemes for international schools.
The accreditation process aims to:

If you are interested in finding out more, please download and read the ALFRI Outline of the Accreditation Process document.
Prices for Accreditation by Language for Results International are set at £1,750 per school.
If your school would like to book a whole-school CPD programme including online courses and accreditation, please email email@example.com with your requirements. Please see the Language for Results International for Schools page for more information.

The ALFRI process has been incredibly smooth, and highly valuable to our schools. It allowed our schools to do a deep self-reflection on their EAL provision and teaching practices, as well as reflect on languages and multilingualism in an international environment. The accreditation process has highlighted strengths and set goals to achieve in areas still in need of development. The ALFRI framework allows our schools to set clear goals, embrace a common approach to catering for EAL students, and makes sure that we are all walking in the same direction. For us as a group, the ALFRI process ties into our group goals, and allows us to bring the best of EAL tuition to our students. We are looking forward to our next accreditation rounds.Orbital Group, e-learning manager
