Intercultural Language Programme
Information from IFHOHYP - The Board

Dear Friends,

Please find attached the Call for Application to the Intercultural Language Programme of the Council of Europe, Directorate of Youth and Sport. There will be English, German, Italian, Spanish, French and Russian intercultural language course in 2006.

Please note that hard-of-hearing participants can be provided induction loop systems at the Language Courses if you indicate this need in your application!
Vanessa Migliosi (former IFHOHYP President) participated in the English Language Course in Dublin and she was provided an induction loop. I was a participant of the Language Course too (German).

I really recommend you to apply to one of the Language Courses! I also suggest applicants who applied last year but were not selected, to apply again. Perseverance is valued.

Please read the regulations carefully. There are two stages in application process:

1) Applications should be first sent to the IFHOHYP Board at AND Deadline for sending applications to IFHOHYP is March 1.

2) IFHOHYP Board will then look at the applications, write their comments on the applications and recommend the candidates to the Council of Europe. Only 2 candidates from an organization can be nominated. After March 1 IFHOHYP will select the 2 candidates and send by post the application + IFHOHYP recommendation letters for each candidate to the Council of Europe.
Deadline for reception of the IFHOHYP applicants’ forms by the Directorate of Youth and Sport, Council of Europe is March 17, by post. Then Council of Europe makes a final selection of all participants for the courses.

Please find attached the description of the Intercultural Language Courses + all details and application form. Please also note that preference in selection goes to representatives of IFHOHYP member organizations.
When you fill in the application, please consider carefully:
- the criteria,
- profile of participants
- priorities of the Language Course programme and the Council of Europe Youth sector.

Then you have more chance to win and pass selection process in the Council of Europe!

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Do not be afraid of applying and GOOD LUCK!!! :-)

With kind regards,
