April 3, 2012 - PRLog -- “What a fantastic workshop! It brought like-minded people together to work and to have fun” said Nadejda Seliouk of Streamline Language School Agency in Belarus.

With close to 500 participants, the workshop hosted 152 educational institutions and 11 exhibitors from 19 countries around the world, and 252 student recruitment agents from Russia, Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Caucasus (Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Belarus, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Estonia, Moldova and Tajikistan).

Both educators and agents were extremely satisfied with their workshop experience and appreciated the mix of old and new-comers to the event. “For me this workshop is always very productive. This year a lot of educators came to Moscow for the first time. It was really interesting to meet them – I hope that we can build strong partnerships” said Natalia Luchina of Russian agency Insight Lingua.

Long-time ICEF supporter, Angelika Volkman from the University of California – Irvine also commented, “It was a great opportunity for me to meet new contacts and reconnect with agents in this market. For me, the quality of agents is most important, and there was plenty of quality at this workshop!”

During the Moscow Workshop, 7 agent participants passed the ICEF agent training course certification exam, earning them the designation ICEF Trained Agent Counsellor (ITAC), a prestigious mark of expertise recognised across the industry. The new ITACs – who come from Armenia, Russia and Ukraine – have raised the total number of ITACs to 116; they have joined this group of industry specialists that continues to grow as increasing numbers of agents make use of ICEF’s variety of testing and training options, including the opportunity to take the test online. For more information on the ITAC certification, online and offline testing opportunities, and a full list of qualified ITACs and their contact details, please visit

Social events within the workshop programme provided a great platform for additional networking and relationship building. In Moscow, participants were treated to a taste of Russian culture, enjoying a traditional music and dance performance at the dinner reception. “The hospitality was outstanding! The music at the party was second to none!” said Gary Reagan, Principal of Golden Hills School in Canada.

The 2013 ICEF Moscow Workshop will once again be held at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Further details will be available shortly on
