Unchanged since 1975, our mission remains our “raison d'être”: to help men and women from different cultures and backgrounds to communicate and understand each other better.

Our commitments

Editorial by Jean de Villeneuve Bargemont - CERAN General Manager

A commitment to society

When CERAN was founded in 1975, founders Monique and René Bastin wanted to include an inspiring commitment to society in the company’s mission: to help men and women from different cultures and backgrounds to communicate and understand each other better.

This strong commitment to placing people and their development at the heart of our corporate mission has always guided CERAN throughout the different chapters of its history and its talents in the positions they have taken.

Our corporate values and culture, embodied daily by our talents, also contribute to our mission and inspire our learners.
