- Linguistic positioning (PL)
Linguistic positioning is established on the basis of a diagnosis, carried out by an external service provider, which makes it possible to situate the level of written and oral acquisition of the beneficiary in relation to the CEFR.
The positioner also assesses the beneficiary's ability and willingness to follow distance training.
The results obtained constitute the so-called initial evaluation and allow orientation towards the compulsory A1 courses or towards the complementary A2 or B1 courses.
The language level of the beneficiary is thus classified according to the following levels: infra-A1, A1, A2, B1 or higher than B1. If the result obtained is lower than the A1 level of the CEFR, the beneficiary is directed by the linguistic positioner towards one of the four obligatory A1 courses within the framework of the CIR adapted according to their linguistic level:
- 100 Hours
- 200 Hours
- 400 Hours
- 600 Hours
If the beneficiary's language level is greater than or equal to level A1, he or she is exempt from compulsory language training.
Two directions are then proposed:
A) An orientation towards a complementary path:
- If its level is equal to level A1 of the CEFR, towards a 100-hour course aimed at acquiring level A2.
- If its level is equal to level A2 of the CEFR, towards a 100-hour course aimed at acquiring level B1 of the CEFR.
B) Certification of your language level (A2 and B1).
The orientations determined by the linguistic positioner, as well as any exemption from language training, are validated by the OFII auditor during the personalized interview carried out with the beneficiary.
2. Personalized interview
Following the linguistic positioning, on the same day, a personalized interview is carried out with an OFII auditor. This interview makes it possible to carry out an overall examination of the situation of the newly arrived foreigner and to prescribe training. Depending on the individual situation of the beneficiary, this interview also makes it possible to direct, if necessary, towards local services or towards the most relevant public employment service (PES) actor (Pôle emploi, APEC, Local mission, Cap emploi).
It is during this interview that the CIR is signed.
At the end of the interview, the auditor gives the signatory of the CIR the invitations to the first three days of civic training as well as, where applicable, confirmation of his entry into language training with the invitation to the first day
