What are the objectives?

The ECML's Strategic Objectives are to help its member states implement effective language teaching policies by:

  • focusing on the practice of the learning and teaching of languages
  • promoting dialogue and exchange among those active in the field 
  • training multipliers 
  • supporting programme-related networks and research projects

Who can apply?

Workshops are advertised to appropriate target groups among language teachers and professionals in language education.


Participants have to fit the profile for a specific workshop. Member states of the ECML may normally select one participant for each central event organised via their National Nominating Authority. The national authorities will choose and nominate the most appropriate participant from their countries, on the basis of the project/event description and national procedures and priorities.
