Cooperation with NILE - Norwich Institute of Language Education

On June 25-26, 2018, the Language Centre hosted a prestigious visitor Dave Allan, founder and director of the Norwich Institute of Language Education, a language trainer with many years of experience.

The purpose of his visit was to share good practices and exchange experiences in the field of quality assurance in education, as well as to develop joint projects to ensure the professional development of the employees of the Language Centre and to create training programs in the field of EMI, the beneficiaries of which would be university lecturers. On the first day of the visit there was a ceremonial meeting with the Rector of the University of Lodz, prof. Sławomir Wiak, during which a letter of intent on cooperation between PŁ and NILE was signed. On the second day of Mr Allan’s visit  lecturers who prepared and ran EMI courses had a chance to exchange views and opinions with the guest. Relaxed atmosphere, with coffee and cookies created grounds for vivid discussions about challenges in adult education and ESP, and finally resulted in a plan for further cooperation and trainings for EMI trainers.

EAQUALS - Certificate of Quality  in Language Education

Lodz University of Technology is the first technical university in Poland to receive the EAQUALS certificate of quality in language education. The accreditation was awarded with distinction in six categories.

To date, EAQUALS accreditation has been granted only to two Polish universities. The Language Centre at Lodz University of Technology is the first at a technical university in Poland to have been distinguished in this way. Thanks to the process of accreditation, our unit has developed the highest standards of language teaching. The main goal of the EAQUALS Association is to promote high standards of language education. The organization cooperates with the European Commission as a consultant in matters related to education, as well as with other entities setting standards for language teaching.

In order to be accredited by EAQUALS, the TUL Language Centre had to meet 50 standards listed in the association's documents. EAQUALS inspectors verified the documentation for study courses and organizational practices. Conformity between the contents of the syllabuses - extended by additional elements - and the language policy of the unit was assessed. In total, 37 fragments of lessons in different languages conducted at various levels were inspected. The didactic and administrative resources of the TUL platform WIKAMP were evaluated.
The degree of implementation of the Centre’s priorities and standards was presented to the Director of the Language Centre in a detailed 35-page report. Finally, the TUL Language Centre was accredited by EAQUALS with distinction in 6 categories: management and administration, certification, resources/materials, work environment/surroundings, customer service, internal communication.

EAQUALS accreditation is a valuable distinction for our Language Centre. Lodz University of Technology also gained valuable credit in the Perspektywy ranking - a national ranking of universities. More about EAQUALS
