Background to the ELP-TT project
This website results from a project run within the ECML's (European Centre for Modern Languages) Empowering Language Professionals programme entitled "Training teachers to use the European Language Portfolio".
Abstract of the project
ELP-TT 3 (2010-2011) is the second of two short-term projects designed to disseminate the ELP training kit developed during the original “ELP-TT” project (“Training teachers to use the European Language Portfolio”) run in the ECML’s second medium-term programme (2004-2007). Whereas ELP-TT2 focused on disseminating the materials of the kit in a number of training events in ECML member states, ELP-TT3 will aim at developing and disseminating further training materials and samples of best practice produced in various contexts and languages through the ELP-implementation website.
“ELP-TT 2” (2008-2009) is the first of two short-term projects designed to disseminate the ELP training kit developed during the original “ELP-TT” project (“Training teachers to use the European Language Portfolio”) run in the ECML’s second medium-term programme (2004-2007).
These follow-up projects will organise training events aimed at ELP multipliers and teacher trainers from different cultural backgrounds and educational settings in 16 ECML member states which did not benefit from training events during the first project (Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Luxemburg, Malta, Netherlands, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland and United Kingdom).
The materials – in English and in French - will be evaluated during these training events and adapted if necessary and recommendations will be made as to how they may be used in different training contexts.
Eight of the sixteen countries will be targeted during the first project and eight more during the second, “ELP-TT 3” (2010-2011), which will continue the dissemination and evaluation process and complete the adaptation of the training kit.
The ELP-TT3 publication and website result from the work of an international network established within one of the ECML projects. We would like to thank all who worked on ELP-TT, in particular the project coordination team for their motivation and active involvement.
