Our accreditations & quality labels

Since its foundation, the alpha.b language school has had high-quality aims. In order to do this, alpha.b is either a member or is accredited by international and national organisations.

Label Qualité FLE, IALC and Eaquals ensure high quality French language courses in a serious and well organised structure.

Label Qualité FLE

Alpha.b has an FLE Quality Label (French as a foreign language).

The FLE quality label is the result of a quality-assurance assessment and is approved by an inter-ministerial commission of the Ministry for Higher Education and Research, the Ministry of Culture and Communication, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The FLE quality label recognises French language schools that offer high quality French language courses and services. Alpha.b and all French language schools recognized by Label Qualité FLE are inspected every four years.

The inspection is based on five criteria: French teachers, teaching and training courses, welcome and support, premises/safety/equipment and management.
