PRODIREKT Education Consultancy has Met Strict Standard of Quality of German ICEF, PRODIREKT Recognized as ICEF Agency

Bonn, Germany – November 21, 2011 – German ICEF today formally recognized PRODIREKT as the Agency and educational consultancy that met ICEF’s strict standard of quality. PRODIREKT successfully completed a quality assurance screen during 2011 and has become a preferred Agency of ICEF.

Language study abroad and Verbalists students in LondonPRODIREKT Director of Educational Programs Jasmina Saric said, “The global population of international students has grown dramatically over the past decade, and all signs point that the same is happening, albeit at the slower pace, in Southeast Europe. This also means that our customers are becoming more demanding and knowledgeable about the opportunities in international education. Therefore, we must be transparent in our practices and be more accountable how we conduct our business. Our company, with the support from the Western educators, created the Verbalists Language Network in 2010 to meet this growing demand for the regional standardization in foreign language studies. The popularity of Verbalists and its fast growth to a 11,000-member strong community in less than two years is the best evidence that the regional customers needed one credible opinion forum and education market place they can trust. With ICEF’s recognition of PRODIREKT’s high quality education services, we continue to show our commitment to improved practice and professional standards”.

Along with our well-established quality assurance screening for agents, ICEF has for some time followed strict guidelines for educators participating in ICEF Workshops. All institutions that attend the ICEF Higher Education Workshop must be fully accredited in their home countries.
