International Education and Training Award
Australian Language Schools (ALS) is the largest single-location, privately owned education provider for international students in Queensland.
Founded in 2007, ALS has achieved 4-digit growth over the past 10 years and anticipates continued double-digit year-on-year growth in the coming years.
Recognised as one of Brisbane’s best language schools, ALS provides English-language intensive courses (ELICOS) and vocational education and training (VET) courses to overseas students using an innovative approach and advanced technologies while meeting strong regulatory frameworks and accreditation.
Targeting education markets such as Korea, Taiwan, Japan, China, Brazil and Colombia with individualised marketing strategies, and capturing students’ need from initial contact through strong supply chains has enabled sustainability and exceptional growth in these markets. In 2018-19, export sales had a value of $10.9 million, 3,503 new enrolments were made, and 2,662 new students started study.
ALS invested $2.6 million for a new campus that opened in the centre of Brisbane in March 2019. The new facility has 4 floors (2,329 square metres) and advanced facilities including the Books and Beans café on ground level. The new campus will enhance ALS’s brand image, which will be the future growth engine contributor for the college.
