However, the academy aims to expand into other subject areas in order to cater to the diverse needs and demands of its students. The college is committed to the quality of education and flexibility of study as well as offering a range of popular courses for the most


competitive prices. Aside from that, the college boasts a genuinely warm and friendly atmosphere that is conducive to learning and teaching.

VADS is a progressive, forward-thinking and dynamic educational institution, and is unique in many ways. The college aims to constantly test new ground and challenge conventional systems of education by pushing the boundaries of innovation and seeking new and better ways of teaching and learning in order to help students get the most out of their experience at the college. VADS sets itself apart with a proven record of demonstrating quality, innovation, flexibility, dynamism, and forward-thinking with a solution-based ethos to training, education and services in a warm, friendly and international environment.

At higher levels, it aims to foster skills that will allow students to work in an English-speaking environment with confidence. Our courses provide students with the confidence and skills they need to communicate effectively in English at different levels for various purposes. VADS provides courses for students with a minimum of elementary level (Entry level 1 or CEFR level A1) language skill up to advanced level (Level 3 or CEFR level C2). Courses are structured and tailored according to the students’ needs, so they can advance as quickly and as far as required, including Functional Skills, ESOL, General English, English for Business, Examination Preparation for English Courses (IELTS and Cambridge), and English for Academic Purposes.

Our English courses are taught by skilled and experienced teaching staff. Our teachers are experts in motivating the students to develop their skills and confidence. We favour small classes, with an average of 10 students, to ensure teachers can provide the support that they need. Our qualified and experienced teachers ensure that students can master the whole language by improving the ability to use English grammar. We will even make the student’s pronunciation sound more natural and easier to understand.

Students can study using a wide variety of activities including working in pairs or groups. They also use various materials such as CDs, DVDs and computers to help them to learn. Moreover, students have individual tutorials with the tutor who will set personal targets with them.

After each exam, students are encouraged to bring in their exams to be reviewed. The collection of exams over the years provides the tutoring service with a number of examples for use in tutoring sessions and to better prepare students for upcoming tests.

Similarly, certain handouts are prepared to help teach students on particular topics. These are accumulated and updated occasionally as needed. Students who are enrolled in tutoring sessions have full access to materials. The cost of these materials is very low because they are provided from time to time over the years when a need arises. Although some investment of time is required to produce them, it is an overhead cost and can be spread out over several years for as long as the handout remains current or useful.

Our main concern is to assist students in facilitating their personal, academic and professional growth. To this end, we offer very popular courses at affordable prices without compromising on quality. Our mission is to provide a well-equipped, friendly and relaxed learning environment in which students, under the guidance of experienced and highly qualified teaching professionals, can achieve their full potential. We also aim to disseminate valuable knowledge and useful skills to students from every part of the world in order to meet the challenges of the modern world in which we live. Thus, we equip students with the best possible preparation for their exams, work and life in general.

In addition, the college’s mission is student-focussed and centred around serving the needs of all members regardless of sex, culture, religion, background and so forth.

Our vision is to become one of the prime educational institutions in East London in terms of delivering quality education from a different discipline.

We aim to fulfil the UK job requirement by our educated and trained students so that they can be turned into an asset for the nation.
