“Our winners represent the highest standards in the industry, embodying shared values of ethics, integrity, leadership, quality, and community engagement. As both the owner and chairman of the CPIEAs and CLLC, I am proud to see CLLC’s support of the CPIEAs, which has led to the recognition of 77 companies in the past ten years. Our goal is to grow to 150 agencies by the end of 2030. The CPIEAs are free to apply and win, and they provide a valuable platform for parents, students, and schools seeking excellence in international education,” said Aly Rajab.
Aly Rajab, the founder and chairman of CLLC.ca, has been a strong advocate for the international education industry, particularly the language sector. Since 2007, he has been convinced that a framework was needed to differentiate the good from the great and shape the future of the industry.
Recognizing the crucial role that international recruiters and agencies play in bringing international students overseas, Aly believed that the framework should serve them, be free of charge to apply and awarded, but with a rigorous application process to enhance the integrity of any applicant.
In 2008, he approached a few industry leaders to help create an awards framework to standardize and improve the international educational agency business worldwide. However, support remained limited, allowing Aly the freedom to create an awards framework that he knew would best serve international agencies.
Through his vision and determination, Aly created the CLLC Agency Awards framework that has since become known as the Canadian Premier International Education Awards (CPIEA). These awards are recognized as one of the most prestigious accolades in the international education industry, and they honor the best of the best in terms of international educational agencies.
CLLC Agency Awards set a high standard for excellence in the industry, and they encourage agencies to strive for continuous improvement. The rigorous application process ensures that only the best agencies are recognized, and the awards ceremony itself serves as a platform for agencies to showcase their achievements and share best practices.
Aly Rajab’s dedication to improving the quality of the international education industry continued to drive him forward. In 2009, he outlined a two-milestone plan that would cover the next two decades, demonstrating his long-term commitment to the industry.
In 2010, CLLC became the Innovator Sponsor for the first decade milestone. This involvement allowed CLLC to operate within the awards separately from the judging process. As the Innovator Sponsor, CLLC began implementing promotional award strategies and promoting the first Canadian Premier International Education Awards (CPIEA), which were initially named
From 2012 to 2022, the CPIEA awarded 65 agencies and achieved the first milestone of bringing 65 quality agencies to the industry. These agencies will support the second milestone, which includes awarding another 120 quality agencies over the following ten years.
The CPIEA has become a prestigious and sought-after award, with agencies from all over the world vying for recognition. The rigorous application process ensures that only the best agencies are recognized, and the awards ceremony provides a platform for agencies to showcase their achievements and share best practices.
Aly Rajab’s vision has had a significant impact on the international education industry, and the CPIEA has become a benchmark of excellence in the industry. The awards have helped to standardize and improve the quality of international educational agencies, and their impact will continue to be felt for years to come.
In conclusion, Aly Rajab’s vision and commitment to improving the international education industry have led to the creation of the CLLC Agency Awards, which have become a benchmark of excellence in the industry. These awards serve as a testament to the hard work and dedication of international educational agencies worldwide.
