ICEF has been at the forefront of the international education sector enabling connections between counsellors and educators since the early 90’s. We have successfully developed certified courses and accreditation to support our global community of study abroad agents and we are proud that today many thousands have achieved certified status.

We firmly believe in the transformational benefit – to individuals, communities, and greater society – that directly results in assisting students globally to choose a better career path.

With this greater purpose in mind, we have decided to extend our support to individuals offering student counselling within secondary schools by creating the ICEF Counsellors Community (ICC). The ICC is a nurturing community that provides bespoke training and development for school career counsellors while also empowering and strengthening relations between them and international higher education institutions.
