What do we offer you as a teacher?
Since its formation, the Federation of Schools of Spanish as a Foreign Language (FEDELE) has opted for training as a one of its privileged courses of actions, with the aim of promoting both excellence and educational innovation among the Federated centers.
The main objective of FEDELE is to preserve and promote the quality status in each of its schools that, in addition, pass the quality inspection granted by the Stamp of Accredited Center by Instituto Cervantes. The possession of the stamp is an indispensable condition for a school to enter the corresponding Regional Association, and therefore be a member of FEDELE.
In the same order of concern for quality, FEDELE has established an internal regulation that is included in the quality charter, by which all schools commit to follow specific guidelines in all the services they offer (facilities, teaching staff, programs, accommodation, , activities, insurance, etc.).
In addition to the Quality Chart, FEDELE has approved a DECLARATION OF STUDENT’S RIGHTS AND DUTIES and has instituted the figure of the STUDENT GUARDIAN, who takes car of the claims that a student may have. This system is new in language programs and placed FEDELE among the most serious and respectful organization with its students and agents.
Courses organized by FEDELE
This training program has been growing exponentially to be able to respond fully to the demand of the Spanish teaching professionals who work at the FEDELE schools, along with institutions that have supported us from the beginning, especially, Instituto Cervantes, and the editorials of the sector with whom we have created a deep draft training proposals the last years.
Courses organized by the federated centers
Many of our schools offer specific courses for Spanish teachers as a foreign language, supported by their own experience in the field.
Below, we include a list of the courses organized by FEDELE centers for all those Spanish teachers who want to consolidate and keep their knowledge up to date. Do not miss them!
Specific events for teachers
ECELE (International Meeting of Spanish Teaching Centers) is a meeting whose main objective is to show the academic offer of Immersion Courses of Spanish as a Foreign Language to teachers and heads of centers where Spanish is taught throughout the world.
The event has an innovative format bases on social networking that offers cultural, tourist and gastronomic activities, and allows participants to know the highlights of the offer in cultural and linguistic immersion programs in Spain while enjoying emblematic places in the city where the event is held, creating a climate of cooperation in the ELE sector that allows participants to optimize their resources and academic tools for the ELE classroom and get to know by first-hand both the FEDELE schools and their academic offer.
Travel with your students to Spain
It is noteworthy the importance of the Spanish language and culture at an international level being a language spoken in 23 countries, with a total of 600 million speakers worldwide, and is studied by approximately 21 million students, so it has become a sector of great importance.
There are many people (young students, adults who want to learn Spanish, families who decide to live the experience of ELE linguistic immersion, etc.) who, in search of new horizons and adventures, embark into a specific plan for learning Spanish as a foreign language to continue their training and learns Spanish in Spain.
Whether it is for a short stay or for long-term stays, the Spanish learning experience at any FEDELE Accredited Center is absolutely enriching and gives the person the possibility to grow, become independent, and experience our culture, while optimizing great social and interpersonal skills such as assertiveness, respect, communication, teamwork, willingness to provide solutions, patience, courtesy, self-confidence, ability to express oneself, adaptability, flexibility and even leadership.
We know that taking linguistic immersion trips can lead to difficulties for the teacher who seeks to do so with their students, regardless of their level. In underage students, these difficulties are usually due to not knowing where they would like to study. To solve these difficulties, we recommend the Spanish teachers to trust in one of our FEDELE Accredited Centers.
FEDELE Accredited Centers guarantee the safety and confidence of being able to travel with your students to Spain and complete a learning experience of Spanish as a highly satisfactory foreign language, since all FEDELE schools meet all the required quality levels. Among them, we would like to highlight:
- They are companies that comply with the legislation and guarantee the safety and quality of the service and are accredited at an educational and logistic level to carry out these linguistic stays.
- Its information is clear and truthful about the characteristics of each course and activities.
- They are responsible for managing the student’s stay abroad effectively, by signing clear and written contracts with all the institutions and companies that are part of the student’s stay.
- Offer complete personalized assistance and permanent support throughout the student and teacher’s stay.
- Professionals who are at all times accompanying the student: teachers, monitors, etc.
- Specific courses for teachers who want to improve and/or adopt certain resources, as well as resolve certain doubts in the management of the ELE classroom group.
