English in the Professions2018-09-06T07:45:21+00:00

Many chartered and other professional bodies have their sometimes centuries old origins in the English speaking world. Their constitutions are often in English, tuition almost wholly in English and license to operate is often built around both current and legacy UK and US statute, covenants and memorandum & articles. And while English is mandatory in the likes of the aviation industry, it is a given that banking, finance and legal professionals demand mastery of English in order to maintain a license to operate along with chartered status or training contract, particularly if working in an international context.

In the Professions

Chartered and professional bodies have experienced a rapid expansion in recent decades, similar to that of the world’s top universities, because of the pace of growth of emerging economies in particular, globalisation and the greater spread of wealth. This has presented new opportunities and challenges, even in markets where English is native or second language as uptake does not necessarily represent the understood position as the primary spoken language. NARIC, the agency that compares qualifications from global universities and bodies, cites an assumed B1 level of English on the Common European Framework (CEFR) as an entry requirement for professional associations.

In practical terms, this may cause challenges as it is well understood that good standards of English are a key factors in exam success, particularly at the professional levels where knowledge acquisition is usually highly complex and technical. Regional differences in quality of English can vary widely, even if a country officially adopts English as a native language. Ensuring a learner has the right English deals with avoidable setbacks in study, removing barriers to success and contributing to improved exam results, which keeps a student on a more predictable journey to membership while positively impacting their overall satisfaction levels and helping stabilize overall attrition rates.
