Although Spark opened its doors to both adult and children Spanish language students in 2011, it has deep roots in education via its educational partners TECS and El Centro Inglés.
TECS is our educational partner in English language education for children, teenagers, adults and companies. TECS was formed more than 15 years ago to provide quality English language education as a Language Centre and Language camps organizer. TECS was so successful that it expanded quickly and currently has five language centres in the province of Cadiz: in El Puerto de Santa Maria, Cadiz, San Lucar and Jerez. TECS is renowned in Spain as one of the best providers of quality summer programmes and especially well known for its innovative approach to learning and TECS now runs six different language camps in Spain, including a new camp in Madrid. SparkSpanish and TECS runs International Camp together. TECS furthermore offers teens and adults language travel options to study English abroad in a variety of countries, including the USA, Ireland and the UK. Spark and TECS will run an option of Spanish language summer together in summer 2012 and also we offer agent partners the possibility to establish inbound (we send you students) and outbound (you send us students) arrangements. TECS has over 10,000 students through it doors and over 2,000 staff since 1998. For more information have a look at the TECS website.
