Groupement FLE is the most important language organization in France, representing 33 language centers teaching French as a foreign language. It started in 2000 and became an association in 2008.
The objectives of Groupement FLE are:
- To promote and develop quality among its members
- To share industry knowledge, competences and networks
- To develop professional skills through two annual events: “Trade days” in January, for school directors and senior managers, “Training days” for teachers and administrative staff in November.
Membership is limited to schools, both public and private, which satisfy the accreditation standards
of the association. This accreditation covers all areas of operations including programs, teacher qualifications, student services, student accommodation, communication and marketing, facilities and administration.
Schools which have been already awarded one or several of the major quality labels (Qualité FLE, EAQUALS. IALC; EDUQUA) benefit from a simplified admission process.
Groupement FLE participates in the Steering Committee of the Quality FLE Label at CIEP (Ministry of Education).
