QALEN is the Quality Assurance in Language Education Network. It was formed following a series of meetings and consultations between various quality assurance and accreditation agencies in the language education sector (in English and other languages).
The objective of QALEN is to provide opportunities for participants and members from accreditation and quality assurance bodies in the language education sector to communicate and collaborate within a safe, supportive environment. By coming together, organizations can develop new, innovative methods of quality assurance and accreditation, create controls to ensure that agencies performing quality assurance are fully qualified to do so, promote a globally recognizable quality mark, and facilitate further growth for both their organization and others.
