Pilgrims English Language Courses

About Pilgrims

For over 40 years we have focussed on the learner being at the centre of the learning process. Not the lesson plan, not the course book or a prescribed method, but the individual.

Our ethos

Pilgrims does not teach a method, but teaches people. 

This pedagogic philosophy is now celebrated throughout the world as the 'Humanistic Approach;' it inspires thousands of Children & Teenagers, Business Professionals and Teachers. Indeed Pilgrims has published over 50 Teacher's resource books on the subject and continues to guide teachers worldwide through the Pilgrims pioneering online magazine ‘Humanising Language Teaching.’ and The Teacher Trainer Journal.

People come to Pilgrims not just to focus on their English, but to focus on their relationship with their English: this transformation at a deep personal level empowers them to take responsibility for how they learn and how they can communicate powerfully in the global language.

Pilgrims is everything a traditional English language school isn't.

In every moment we are:

Creating space where anything is possible

Being people who live our values. “Pilgrims is a company we love to work with and for” 

Being open and vibrant so that new ideas and innovations arise one after another  through co-operation and creative energy. 

Being the most inspiring organisation where trainers, participants, colleagues and peers aspire to work and be. 

We stand for the possibility of personal and professional transformation through our own continually transforming leadership, inspiration and coaching. 

Our ‘doing’ flows from our ‘being’. 

We promise to fulfil on being the essence of Pilgrims – and our essence drives every action, communication and engagement with the world outside and inside Pilgrims.
