Last year, we spotlighted Émilie Nolf, our education and bilingualism specialist, recently honored with the Academic Palms. Today, it is with pride that we celebrate the birth of a new initiative she launched in 2023: Agate Formation.

Emilie Nolf bilinguismeEmilie shares with us: “The global educational landscape is constantly changing, and languages play a vital role in this transformation. In this ever-moving world, where cultures intersect and horizons expand, Agate Formation stands alongside teachers, institutions, associations… as a dedicated partner to assist educators in confidently navigating today’s multilingual context.”

Agate Formation: On the Road to Educational Excellence

Agate Formation is much more than a mere initiative. It is a training center for French-speaking teachers operating in a multilingual context. Their goal is clear: to provide pedagogical and didactic training to education professionals working with children and adolescents in a multilingual environment. Émilie Nolf created Agate Formation to support these teachers in their professional development, equipping them with the necessary skills to meet the challenges of an ever-evolving world.

Agate Formation’s Multidisciplinary Team Guided by Core Values

The strength of Agate Formation lies in its team of multidisciplinary trainers and the values they all embody. Composed of active professionals such as trainers, speech therapists, National Education inspectors, educational counselors, and psychologists, this team embodies the excellence and diversity of education. Each of the 10 team members brings unique expertise to the team, ensuring high-quality and context-adapted training.

The training offered by Agate Formation is designed to embody and bring to life their core values during each session: Reflective Analysis / Sharing and Collaboration / Impact / Adaptation to Context / Kindness and Listening / Personal Engagement.

Customized Responses for Institutions

Agate Formation goes beyond standardized training. For institutions, tailor-made solutions are offered, taking into account the constraints and specificities of each educational context. The team works closely with schools to define training programs tailored to their specific needs.

The Impact of Agate Formation

Since its creation in January 2023, Agate Formation has partnered with institutions such as the cultural services of the French Embassy in the United States, the FLAM USA federation, several bilingual schools, the University of South Carolina and the University of Georgia, the network of FLAM associations in the United Kingdom…

In one year, the team has welcomed 10 collaborators, trained more than 200 teachers from 80 different organizations worldwide. The training provided had an impact on more than 6,000 students.

Émilie Nolf’s vision, expressed with passion, reflects her desire to train teachers who, in turn, will positively impact a large number of students. For her, training teachers is more than a vocation; it is a catalyst for change.
