My team have worked their way through the various levels of the Certificate in Business Language Competence exams and I now have some good speakers in my department.  closing quote

Monitoring Progress

Your trainer will constantly monitor your progress throughout your course. We produce regular progress reports and an end of course report. Your language proficiency level will be determined in relation to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The CEFR has become the common standard for defining language proficiency levels and interpreting language qualifications not just in Europe, but worldwide. It describes language ability on a scale of levels, from A1 for beginners up to C2 for those who have complete mastery of a language.

You will be offered the opportunity of taking a recognised qualification. We are an approved centre for OCR (Oxford, Cambridge and RSA) qualifications and we can also prepare you for qualifications from internationally recognised awarding bodies, such as the Goethe Institut and the Centre International d'Etudes Pédagogiques.
