“We are thrilled by the reach of our Future English Instructors challenge with Sqore,” said Matthew Griffin, director of the University of Denver’s English Language Center (ELC). “This is our second competition with Sqore and most successful. It is wonderful to see the University of Denver and the ELC attract such strong interest from across the globe.”
As both Sqore and University of Denver share the vision that the best talent should win, regardless of where they are from, what they look like, or their background, it is especially pleasing to see that the participants represent 160 countries.
“Seven years ago we started Sqore with the ambition to match students with educational opportunities based on their talent and skills in an engaging and transparent process. Working with University of Denver and the English Education Center we see this come to life.
