New visa system!


The Federation of Associations of Spanish schools in Spain, FEDELE, has created a new visa system to adapt the needs of federated schools to the problems that usually arise when managing student visas.

In addition, a work protocol has been created for the resolution of incidents as soon as possible and thus expedite the doubts and processing of visas.

Thus, the federated centers have access to a private platform where they can consult and obtain:

  • The most relevant and current information on student visas.
  • The documentation that the center must provide to the students before they request the visa and advice for its correct completion.
  • How to process the denial of a visa for FEDELE to manage the application with the respective Embassy or Consulate.

The visa system is restricted to federated centers.

What do we offer you as a school?

For the last 20 years, FEDELE’s main objective has been to promote the quality and professionalism status of the companies in the Spanish Teaching sector in Spain with a common goal: to offer a quality linguistic and cultural immersion experience to students from all over the world.

Coordination with the different affiliated associations and the Spanish language teaching centers so that their Managing Board can establish a common general and national management and action policy.

Business Management

For FEDELE, business management is the compass that guides the path of a business, its strategy and purpose in relation to quality, safety, responsibility, trust, skills, staff protection, etc. All of them are essential factors that will expand a company that generates products and services from planning, organization, management and control.

In the everyday of a Spanish school in Spain there are many issues that are generated around the hiring of a Spanish course by a student from another country and the doubts that may rise regarding the services.

From FEDELE the following queries are directly addressed:

  • Information and consultation service in labor aspects, with the application of the Non-Regulated Training Agreement.
  • Information service in fiscal aspects.
  • Advice, support and legal advice in reporting activities carried out by companies or organizations that involve illegal and unfair competition to the sector.
  • Advice, support and advice for consular incidents.
  • Dissemination of the updated list of FEDELE centers to embassies, consulates and government delegations to accelerate procedures for obtaining a visa.

FEDELE is an organization formed by private and independent schools, all of them are directly or indirectly competent. All centers ensure that sharing information and time with the competition is the best and most effective way to know the sector in which you work.

FEDELE schools share and receive this information through:

Regular Associations meetings

Generally, these meetings take place within the association and they share information on general and local sector issues that affect schools and plan actions to be undertaken directly or through the federation. In an indicative way, these meetings take place quarterly.

Managing Board Meetings

On a monthly basis, the conclusions reached at the Associations meetings are discussed by the president of the Association to the Managing Board where the measures adopted by partners are approved, drawing the lines of work of the Federation.

All these meetings have a final act that members can request from their respective president to be informed at all times of the decisions taken by the Federation as a whole.

Sector studies

FEDELE prepares an annual sector survey that shows the main trends that affect the sector. Additionally, they are distributed among the associated schools that participate in their elaboration and among the organizations associated to the Federation, since it is the only document that provides data of the Spanish teaching sector in Spain.

Annual meetings

The FEDELE Convention is an annual meeting that takes place in the month of February. In it, directors of FEDELE schools meet, and sectoral and internal issues are discussed to draw the lines of work of that year and the economic results of the previous year are also presented to the partners.

Promotion and representation management

For FEDELE, promotion and representation management has the function of promoting, encouraging, designing, and carrying out projects that entail clear and tangible benefits for the federated schools in any field, with the aim of offering a product or service that reaches the largest number of people or consumers, giving them maximum satisfaction.

Our goal is to help schools to effectively dialogue with the demand of the Spanish teaching sector in all its mainly academic and language tourism aspects nationally and internationally, with segments and niches that compose it and that are potentially interesting, through a series of communication strategies and actions.


INSTITUTIONAL REPRESENTATION. FEDELE’s intense work on issues of sector representation with national and regional governments is transferred and reported to schools as a key element in the development of the sector. FEDELE maintains an intense collaboration with Instituto Cervantes and Turespaña and with other relevant institutions in the sector both for the promotion of federated schools and for the development of the sector in terms of quality and certification.

The Spanish Federation of Associations of Spanish Schools for Foreigners has been developing since its foundation in 2000 a policy of alliances, agreements and protocols aimed at cooperation, promotion and coordination with numerous public and private institutions aimed at promoting quality in teaching Spanish as a foreign language nationally and internationally.

Communication and Marketing Management

Communicate properly the offer itself with the appropriate message to the appropriate target and through appropriate channels is of fundamental importance.

In FEDELE we are committed to an integrated marketing communication using different means to carry out the task such as: advertising, direct marketing, sales promotion, public relations and digital marketing.

The communication strategies and actions we propose include:

  • Definition and implementation of integrated promotion and communication plans.
  • Realization of complete and verified databases of target clients (associations, international schools, agencies) that have a specific profile and direct relationship with the characteristics of the offer, used to define and develop marketing actions.
  • Design and implementation of strategies and actions for online communication and social media marketing.

In line with the previous idea of management and representation, FEDELE does an intense communication work to publicize the FEDELE brand. There are many institutions that recognize us as a reference of excellence and quality throughout the world, but it is a continuous and expanding work.
