The National Contact Point is responsible for creating a stable network of Albanian participants trained at the ECML and for applying their expertise in teacher training.

Care is taken to ensure that nominees are actively involved in the particular workshop topic and disseminate information on the expertise acquired afterwards. Participants are obliged to submit a report after attending a workshop.
