Every four years our school in Paris is visted by the inspection team from Label Qualité FLE. This accreditation body was set up in 2007 as part of the drive by various government ministries ( including the Ministry for National Educational, Higher Education and Research and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs) to promote French as a foreign language and monitor standards in the French language schools. The Label Qualité FLE certification is awarded to ‘educative institutions that consistently present language instruction and services of a guaranteed high quality’.
Following our recent inspection in November, LSI Paris was awarded 3 stars, the highest possible score. Two inspectors spent 3 days in the school assessing the school on the following criteria:
- Student welfare
- School building
Inspectors had full access to the building and classes during their visit and met with teachers, staff and students. Particular points of strength mentioned by the inspection team included the class preparation and quality of the teaching, welcoming and supportive staff and the school environment.
We’ll be linking to the full published report once it’s ready, but for now we’d like to congratulate the team at LSI Paris for all their hard work!
