Project description:

The project’s core aim is to enable recognition, transparency and comparability of qualifications and learning outcomes of IC (intercultural) service providers (i.e., IC trainers, advisors and coaches) through developing and establishing a framework of binding professional standards, regulations for the accreditation process and a self-assessment tool for IC providers. Such a framework will offer transparent, evidence-based, comprehensible and reliable guidelines for decision-making to clients, learners, IC service providers and institutions offering intercultural training qualifications. The regulations and self-assessment tool will provide information about the level of current qualification and guidance for achieving accreditation.

The results of the project will be elaborated to support its aim. Among others, there will be three Intellectual Outputs:

  1. ECILP – Set of Standards for European Certificate for Intercultural Learning Professionals
  2. GRR – Governance, Regulations and other Requirements for the ECILP Accreditation Process
