Methodology

La Compagnie des Formateurs' objective:

 

To bring its customers the benefit of its linguistic, terminological and educational expertise in order to define tailor-made training programmes adapted to suit their specific needs. Thanks to this approach, learners develop their language skills, communicate more accurately with their foreign contacts, and thus increase their company's overall performance.

 

The means deployed to achieve this goal are implemented as follows:

 

Identification of needs

La Compagnie des Formateurs meets the company's training manager to define and formalise its employees' training needs. This interview is a chance to identify the learners' profiles and the company's training objectives.

A telephone appointment will be organised with each learner following this interview, this will provide a chance to get to know the learner and assess their level of linguistic ability.

 

Learner assessment

This telephone assessment is the first contact with the learner. The aim of this interview is to assess the learner's level of ability, confirm the training objective and understand their expectations. At the end of the process, an individualised training programme is drawn up.

 

Training programme

The training programme is a reflection of the work carried out upstream. The teaching method will favour practical application through role play as early as possible, listening, oral expression and written expression.
