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
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.
Why we do what we do
In every moment we are…
Being people that live values that attract positive attention throughout the world. “Pilgrims is a company we love to work with and for”
Being so vibrant 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.
