The DAEFLE or Diplôme d’Aptitude à l’Enseignement du Français Langue Etrangère is a professional qualification for teaching French as a foreign language, co-organised by the Alliance française Paris Ile-de-France and the CNED, the French national centre for distance learning.

Candidates must complete 480 hours of online training consisting of 6 modules, which may be studied separately over several years, and pass the final exam. There is an obligatory pre-enrolment access test.

The Alliance Française de Manchester is a registered centre for the  final exam, which will take place at our centre. Please note, we are not the exam creators/organisers, and all DAEFLE exams are organised through Paris. Further information can be found at www.alliancefr.org, the website of the Alliance Française de Paris Ile-de-France.

Why take THE DAEFLE?

- Teaching French as a foreign language is a specialist skill which requires specialised training;
- To build on and further develop existing teaching skills;
- To obtain a professional qualification and access a greater range of professional opportunities.
