Our Mission

To connect learners, peers, and instructors to a world of global life skills via globalised language learning and practice. 

2019 was our Diamond Anniversary, celebrating sixty years of innovation in foreign language education and multicultural awareness.


Global and Strategic Partnerships

An integral part of our programmes is  cooperation with schools abroad; these can be curriculum or language schools, with which we establish exchanges within the framework of our ‘Cosmopolitan Competences-Citizens of the World ©’ programme. During 2019 and 2020, we collaborated with schools and educational experts in Korea, Russia, Nepal, India, Canada and Kenya.

In 2020 NIKOLOPOULEIO became a Certified Member of the Global Schools Programme and a signatory to the commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

In 2019, NIKOLOPOULEIO signed an MOU and became a Strategic Partner of the UNESCO Chair for Futures Literacy and an active member of their Transforming the Future platform.
