QLS & Eaquals – engagement
The invaluable networking and support provided by Eaquals to its members has contributed greatly to the development of QLS as the pioneering educational organisation it is now. In its infancy, QLS benefited enormously from Eaquals’ Quality Assessment Scheme. Moreover, through Eaquals, QLS was given the opportunity to network and co-operate with other countries on European projects such as the multi-language European Language Portfolio, the participation in the Leonardo da Vinci programme for the publication of ESP courses in Medicine, Law and Finance, to mention but a few.
This long-standing co-operation and support continues with Eaquals by sponsoring the QLS Online School Debate Festival, and funding the participation of QLS speakers in TESOL conferences and providing Eaquals speakers for QLS events. The plethora of high standard webinars provided by Eaquals during the past two years of the pandemic, have provided substantial educational support and have been greatly appreciated. QLS on its part participates in the Eaquals’ annual conferences with both participants and speakers and promotes Eaquals among its members, as well as in conferences, book exhibitions and events throughout Greece.
The QLS Project Teams work tirelessly to plan and implement original and innovative educational programmes (see below), designed to offer learners of foreign languages tuition which is linked to everyday life, as well as those life skills which will enable them to cope with the demands of modern society and the workplace in the 21st century. We would be delighted to share some of the award-winning programmes below with other members of Eaquals.
