The Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL) is the pre-eminent UK-based professional membership body for language practitioners. It aims to enhance the recognition and promote the value of languages and language skills in the public interest. Founded in 1910, CIOL has almost 6,000 members. It aims to:

  • serve the professional interests of its members by delivering high quality services and promoting the interests of the profession
  • provide nationally-accredited, professional qualifcations and set standards for language practitioners through its awarding organisation the IoL Educational Trust (IoLET)
  • be an authoritative and respected voice promoting the learning and use of languages, and the status of language work, both in the UK and internationally
  • provide informed advice to bodies and organisations engaged in the formulation of strategy and policy affecting languages

The former Institute of Linguists was granted its Royal Charter by HM Queen Elizabeth II on 19 July 2005 and formally began operating as The Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL) on 1 September 2005.
