Looking for recent info about Malvern House London

Unread postby mokitta » 12 Jun 2011, 13:01

Hi all,

I'm in my second year of teaching abroad and I'm trying hard to move back to England.

Malvern House London has just offered me an interview.
I know this school has been blacklisted and its licence has been suspended in the past (suspention now revoked), but I would like to hear from those of you who have recently worked there and/or have any updated info on Malvern House.

Thank you in advance for you precious comments.

The best way of looking for up to date information is generally to do a refined Google search limited by time. I did one for new pages about Malvern House London from the last week, and although nothing especially relevant came up I did get to a page on Malvern House teachers on LinkedIn who you could maybe contact for their experience. Alternatively, try the same thing on Google for longer periods such all the results from the past month.

Thank you very much for your suggestions.
I haven't found any info through a Google search, but I have posted an "info request" on LinkedIn, hopefully someone will be able to help.
Thanks again.

Mokitta,
There was no 'blacklist'...over 120 private colleges were attacked by UKBA.Malvern House was one of the very few who proved UKBA wrong, had them reverse their decision (without the need for the threat of judicial review) and have now gone on to become a HTS institution. Take a look at their website. great location. Vibrant atmosphere.

Thank you very much for your comments Lukecas.
I must admit, from their website MH looks fantastic.
I was aware of the reversed decision but in that case, why all those nasty comments on "TEFL blacklist"?
Have a look at these:

I guess it doesn't matter anyway, I will see with my own eyes very soon!
