Instituto Cervantes will not close any centres

Friday, November 23, 2012

According to this article in Spanish, the Instituto Cervantes will not be closing any of its centres even though funding is to be reduced by 37%. The reason: they expect to be able to save 5 million euros through restructuring, other cost savings and increasing the number of diplomas awarded to students learning the language. Not sure exactly what that means - is it more frequent testing, offering new types of diplomas, something else? The 2013 test schedule is already set, so I don't think there'll be any change there.

Checking another article: ah, I see. The institute foresees an increase in demand for classes and testing so this along with some restructuring should help them avoid having to close any centres. Good news.
