English Speaking Board (International) Ltd

The English Speaking Board's mission is to promote clear, effective oral communication at all levels by providing high quality assessments, training and services in the UK and overseas, recognising and encouraging the potential of all.

We know that speaking to communicate is a fundamental human need. Many people, particularly the young, are unable to achieve their potential in personal life or in the job market through fear or lack of opportunity, but ESB assessments give them all a voice. Working in schools, colleges, prisons and all other educational environments, ESB assesses students within the context of a peer group with a trained and friendly visiting assessor. Students gain confidence to speak out for themselves and to listen actively to others. Those who need the facility most are the least likely to be able to afford the opportunity.
