In 2021, American Group International (AGI) became the Anglia franchise holder for Morocco. AGI has been an educational brand since 2012. AGI has placed hundreds of students into the American Educational System with low cost, affordable, educational programs including an American School in Agadir.
AGI have used the Anglia system in their language programs since 2013 when Julie Wilburn and Suzanne Linsen proctored exams at Institution Al Inbiaat in Agadir.
Julie Wilburn is the CEO of American Group International and lived in Morocco for many years and also holds American/Moroccan dual citizenship in the country.
The AGI team has now embarked on the next level in its offerings to give opportunities to thousands of people to master the international language of English in business and communication with top English training and assessments. We strive to give back to the Moroccan community and reach the areas that desire to take international exams. AGI wants local teams based in each of the 12 regions of the country to execute local community-based programs to reach the unreachable. The main headquarters are located in the city of Agadir and it is centralised to the applying of the AGI mission and educating the community in English throughout the Kingdom of Morocco. AGIs number of local franchise distribution networks will hopefully grow rapidly in the next few years; as English is quickly becoming a new love for the Moroccan young people. This in return will hopefully open up new avenues for many including new international opportunities to people inside as well as international levels from the outside.
