ICAO CIRCULAR 323
Guidelines for aviation English Training Programmes
|Publication Date:||1 January 2009|
The purpose of this circular is not to recommend or accredit any given training provider, institution or school. Neither are the guidelines meant to replace aviation English trainer training. However, this circular does seek to lay down a set of principles of best practice and guidelines by which any aviation English training can be assessed.
The circular addresses four areas:
1. Aviation English training design and development (Chapter 1)
2. Aviation English training delivery (Chapter 2)
3. Aviation English trainer profiles and
4. Aviation English trainer training (Chapter 4)
These guidelines were based on the expertise and experience of the Board and members of the International Civil Aviation English Association (ICAEA) (www.icaea.pansa.pl) as an integral part of its commitment to enhancing standards in aviation English training as instrumental to improving the standard of aviation communications worldwide. In doing so, there is one single concern: safety.
National authority personnel training managers, administrators, training designers and providers, trainers or facilitators involved either directly in training or in its oversight will benefit from this circular as it will assist them in their efforts to ensure training efficiency and effectiveness.
