EPG seminars


Over the last two years the European Profiling Grid project, co-financed by the European Commission, has worked to create an innovative tool to improve the quality of language training in Europe. This instrument, the European Profiling Grid (EPG), is a practical tool for mapping and assessing language teacher competencies internationally.

The final seminar took place in October 2013, in the beautiful former Sèvres Porcelain Works on the outskirts of Paris, and aimed to discover more about the EPG and how it could be implemented in different teaching context.
