Accreditation and quality label

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 guarantee the quality performance of each centre France has recreated an interministeral commission– The Ministries of Higher Education and Research, Foreign and European Affairs, and Culture and Communication — to establish a certification system to provides centres in France with national and international recognition.

The Quality french as a foreign language label covers 5 fields, hosting, facilities, manage teachers and training programs.
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.
