Developing teacher competences for pluralistic approaches
Training and reflection tools for teachers and teacher educators

These training tools will help language and other subject teachers to implement approaches aimed at developing learners' competences as described in "A Framework of reference for pluralistic approaches to languages and cultures (FREPA)".
