Introduction to Lertlah
The purpose of this accreditation was to gain the official right to offer the Manitoba (Canada) Curriculum. We offer the Manitoba Curriculum to the International Program (80%English), and the English Program (50%English). The Canadian Educational Accreditation programs are offered by all ten Canadian Provinces. The Manitoba program particularly fits Lertlah’s needs in Thailand as the Manitoba Education system is highly focused on second language immersion. The Accreditation provides significantly higher quality educational programming for Lertlah. Lertlah, in order to maintain the agreement annually, must be inspected by senior Ministry officials every year. These officials ensure that Lertlah is properly offering the Manitoba curriculum with qualified Canadian Bachelor of Education teachers and through the use of the proper resources. Lertlah expanded its Canadian Accreditation program in 2005, through an additional Accreditation by the province of Nova Scotia. This addition offered Lertlah students a broader opportunity to study in Canada through any of the universities in Manitoba or Nova Scotia. There are approximately 3000 students in 3 campuses.
