Your action plan with LSI

Your needs and your objectives

Meeting you in person and understanding the training needed by your company are important to us. We will assess both your needs and objectives during an interview either face-to-face or on the phone, depending on your availability. Together, we will be able to define your requirements in terms of time, budget and progress reports.

Participants' level test

We will organise interviews with you as well as written and oral tests with the participants for the future course. Our teaching manager or our teachers will come to your company to carry out oral evaluations while the written tests can be completed on-line.

Distribution of groups

Distribution of participants will be based on their language levels and requirements, such as the need for similar or varied groups, different skills and their hierarchical position in the company. Following a discussion with our teaching manager, we will be able to decide together on the most appropriate group for each participant. We can also organise one-to-one lessons for some collaborators where necessary.

Participants' availability

Depending on the availability of participants we will work together to plan the potential lesson schedules for the different groups. LSI offers completely flexible schedules for one-to-one lessons as well as company group lessons. Schedules can be changed with up to 24 hours' notice, except during week-ends when we would ask for 48 hours' notice.

Planning your course plan and budget

Based on participants' test results and a thorough analysis of the requirements and expectations your company expresses, we will design your personalised course.

Financial support for language training

  • 4S Fund
  • Brussels Region : Brussels Region offers a partial reimbursement of language training attended by the staff of PME located in its area.
  • Actiris language vouchers : this initiative aims to support unemployed people looking for work. Their insufficient knowledge of French, Dutch, German or English is seen to be limiting their job search or the possibility of setting up their own company. These language vouchers are financed 100% by Actiris in the form of one-to-one language lessons. Our LSI school is one of the few subsidized by ACTIRIS as a language training operator and we welcome students with "MATCHING" language vouchers. Job seekers should always ask Actiris for language vouchers before signing a contract with the company.
