EF Education First - 50 Years in Education

1,397 views

Published on

EF Education started in 1965 as an organiser of summer language camps on the south coast of England, for Swedish teenagers. 50 years later the company has grown to become the largest organisation in the field, with recruitment offices in more than 55 countries, partnerships in an additional 60 countries, and over 300 schools around the world, with programmes for most segments of the educational market.

In this presentation, EF briefly looks back at the history, gives a summary of all the programmes offered at the moment, and presents the news for 2015. We have also included a video with Anders Ahlund, EF's President of International Sales and Marketing, to get his perspective on the industry and on some of the new initiatives at EF.
