Quality assurance is at the forefront of our planning at Via Lingua Florence. We are committed to providing a course and certificate which are internationally benchmarked and which are subject to rigorous quality assurance procedures. In order to help us achieve these objectives, we have developed four specific strategies: the establishment of internal and external moderation procedures, the provision of professional development opportunities for all Via Lingua staff, the establishment of academic and advisory boards and the development of a code of ethics.
Via Lingua International actively supports professional development within the fields of international education and English language instruction. Staff hold membership in NAFSA: Association of International Educators, an organization promoting international education in the United States. Staff are also members of Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), an association upholding standards of excellence in English language teaching. Via Lingua International endorses TESOL standards and the NAFSA Code of Ethics.
