And since then it has been fully committed to delivering quality education, continuously expanding and improving. Within just one decade, our company has gone a relatively short yet resoundingly successful way up to what it is now – one of the most recognized and largest educational brands in China. Every step of our journey has been determined by our mission to “Make our children bilingual” and our vision to “Become the Leader of Children’s EnglishEducation in Asia”.
At the moment, i2 Education is present in 23 cities throughout the country, having over 2,000 staff members employed and 45,000 learners studying English in more than 100 directly-owned campuses all over China.
An interesting fact
being now a well-known educational brand, our company started only 10 years ago as a little group of enthusiasts in Chengdu, Sichuan. Back then, it was hard to believe that this tiny, brand-new ESLtraining center founded by Peng Qi would rapidly transform into an expansive educational network, covering the entire Sichuan province already by 2014.
Since then, i2 Education’s story has been nothing but a streak of achievements:
2015 – Obtained certification from Pearson to provide the PTE exam to assess students’ English level.
2016 – Became the official partner of TOEFL Junior and TOEFL Primary exams.
2018 – Expanded to more than 80 campuses all over China, from Shandong to Yunnan.
In 2019, i2 Education outlined its plans of going on to the next level – IPO and a stable presence in the global business community. Our company has set the goal of becoming the first internationally acknowledged educational brand originated in China. To fulfill our ambitious plans, the Headquarters of i2 Education was relocated to Guangzhou, seeking opportunities to internationalize. As a part of this concept, numerous foreign staff members were invited to assist the company’s further academic and financial development on a national level.
After the COVID-19 pandemic took its toll on the educational industry in China and the world, our company is proud to stay a prominent player in the ESL market. i2 Education has gained more credibility, remaining the only major ESL employer in China that didn’t downsize on personnel or implement salary cuts to make it through the crisis caused by the pandemic. In fact, during that challenging time i2 Education launched i2 Kiddo, a subsidiary branch focused on group classes of 12 students and opened i2 Kiddo learning centers in several cities in China.
In 2020, i2 Education has been growing not only through its learning centers but also by dynamically developing its own educational content, offering high-tech solutions for its clients, and stepping out of the box of traditional education. In 2020, our company released its first online AI-learning platform – “i2 Chuckles,” a multi-functional curriculum that provides an immersive experience to study online independently. In addition to online and offline educational programs, i2 Education is launching a variety of products and digital tools to empower students with a sense of autonomy in Englishlanguage learning and practice.
As one of the industry leaders, i2 Education embraces innovative teaching approaches as well as actively participates in public welfare projects. Social responsibility has been the cornerstone of i2 Education values since its foundation. In 2012, the enterprise officially launched “1% drive”, a charity program to provide support for left-behind children in poverty-stricken areas and cities, to deliver charity scholarships, and to establish care funds to support outstanding rural teachers who devote their lives to education. Throughout these years, 1% drive program has been helping thousands of people in China.
Having its market position solidified, i2 Education is now looking forward to new accomplishments in the ESL industry in China as well as around the globe.
