M-Pesa Foundation Academy will operate as a centre for the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).

The Academy has also been accredited for the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service for the United Kingdom (UCAS) examinations.

As the most popular English Language proficiency test in the world, the IELTS exam enables speakers of English as a second language to prove their proficiency to universities, employers or government bodies. The exam is mandatory for getting a travel, work or study visa for countries such as the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service for the United Kingdom (UCAS) exam is internationally recognized as proof of academic and professional English for students wishing to study in the UK. The M-PESA Foundation Academy is now able to offer these exams through a partnership with Uni-Abroad and IDP, the co-owner of the IELTS test. The academy is now part of the network of approved test centres that deliver the IELTS exam in Kenya.

“This is a place of genuine transformation, where children from the humblest and challenging of circumstances learn that through determination, dedication and a commitment to learning, they can actually create their own destiny and influence the destiny of others. I’m glad we are now opening up to the public to assist people to fulfil their dreams of working or studying abroad,” said Alan Adlington-Corfield, Executive Head of School M-PESA Foundation Academy.
