The World Leader in International Education: Education First signed a contract with GP Solutions.
EF Education First (est. 1965) – a global education company with nearly 50,000 employees providing educational tours and programmes. The company combines language training with cultural exchange, academic achievement and educational travel to deliver courses and programs that transform dreams into international opportunities.
The history of the company is rooted far in the early 1960s, when a young Swedish man named Bertil Hult traveled to England for the first time. As a dyslexic, school had always been a challenge for him. But he was surprised by how effortlessly he picked up English in England.
Bertil became convinced that traditional classroom-based teaching was not always the most effective. In 1965, he decided to start a small company called Europeiska Ferieskolan (European Holiday School – EF for short) that combined language learning with travel abroad. He called the program Språkresor, or Language Travel, which provided one of the world’s first hands-on learning experiences outside the classroom.
Today, experiential learning is a cornerstone of modern education. For EF, it has been the philosophy behind every program for 50 years. This simple but effective way to learn has helped Education First become world’s largest educational organization.
EF signed a contract with GP Solutions in January 2019 and will use our booking platform GP Travel Enterprise to automate their Global Rewards loyalty programme to reward group leaders that work for their company.
We are grateful for the trust this phenomenal company gave us and can’t wait for the further cooperation!
