FLE : Quality label "Français Langue Etrangère"

Our ESL school : Every year more than 100 000 people come to France to learn French. Some 300 language centres (public, private or associative) offer their services in this respect. To address such situation, France has decided to establish, through the participation of three ministries - Higher Education and Research, Foreign and European Affairs, and Culture and Communication -  a certification system for the French foreign language centres established on French territory. For this purpose, a label entitled “French foreign Language quality” has been created. This process aims at the official identification, recognition and promotion of the schools where the language programs and related services present the required quality guarantees. The Centre international d'études pédagogiques (CIEP), a national public institution administratively related to the ministry for National Education, is in charge of implementing this certification system. For more detailed information, please visit the www.ciep.fr/qualitefle/index.php page.

Bildungsurlaub

Our ESL school : « Bildungsurlaub » (or paid study leave), which entitles an employee to a paid leave, was voted by the German government in 1976. Thus, the German Federal Government has undertaken to give every worker some paid days off each year to allow them to receive either long-term or personalised vocational training. But as vocational training falls within the legislative competence of the Länder, the rules as well as their applications vary according to each federal state. In some federal states, ESL is recognised as an institution for the study paid leave it gives to its employees.
