Accreditation and quality label

Every year more than 100 000 people come to France to learn French. Some 300 language centers (public, private, or associative) offer their services in this respect.

To guarantee each center’s quality performance, France has recreated an interministerial commission– The Ministries of Higher Education and Research, Foreign and European Affairs, and Culture and Communication–to establish a certification system to provide France centers with national and international recognition.

As a foreign language label, the quality french 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.
