European Framework for CLIL teacher education

 (29 votes)

Content and language integrated learning (CLIL) has emerged as a major innovation for improving both the quality of language learning and reform of educational curricula. As the professional competence of teachers must be based on student needs, CLIL curricula, whether designed for teacher training or for classroom teaching and learning, should be complementary.

The publication offers a teacher training curriculum for CLIL that may be linked to learners' curricula. Adaptable curricular models, suitable for both foreign language and content teachers are based on a set of defined target professional competences, e.g.: "CLIL teachers are able to articulate and discuss CLIL with school’s internal and external stakeholders".The publication is proposed as a conceptual lens and model, not as a prescriptive template.


The European Framework for CLIL Teacher Education:

  • is a macro-framework that identifies the target professional competences for CLIL teachers;
  • includes the competences necessary to teach content subjects and an additional language in an integrated manner;
  • proposes professional development modules to help teachers attain these target professional competences.
