The Centre International d’Études Pédagogiques (CIEP) is a national, public organisation well-known in France and abroad for its expertise in training, evaluation and languages and as a key player in the sphere of international cooperation in the field of education. Its activities are carried out by a network of experts and national and international partners supported by the know-how of a team of more than 200.
CIEP has been active in the field of European project management for more than a decade, as coordinator of a number of previous and current projects within the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission such as Semlang, SAEL, REAL, and as a partner in different EU projects, including Surveylang and Lingu@net.
Building upon this experience, CIEP now organises three Europe-wide annual training courses: Forlang (a European approach to language teacher training), Foresite (ICT to support language teaching) and ForMoove (European awareness and mobility projects for schools). The CIEP is the contact point for the European Centre for Modern Languages (ECML) in France.
