Promotion de l’éducation plurilingue – Partage de pratiques, formation et information (PEP)

The project “Promotion de l’éducation plurilingue – Partage des pratiques, formation et information (PEP)” aims to strengthen the competences of (active and future) language teachers, to promote multilingual education and, as an overall and longer-term goal, to promote multilingualism among European citizens. It contributes to the implementation of the central objective of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR, 2001) – the development of multilingual and pluricultural competence. The relevance of this educational objective was emphasised in the companion volume to the 2020 CEFR; at the same time, it is still little present in educational institutions.
