The CATAPULT Consortium had a busy 2019 and Output 2 (Common Competence Framework) is now complete.
The first step towards drafting a common competence framework (CCF) for LSP teachers consisted in identifying and analysing existing LSP teacher education programmes as well as existing national teacher competence frameworks within the partner countries. The second step then consisted in a meta-study of previously published research papers on LSP teaching. This was carried out with a view to identifying the specific skills necessary for effective LSP teaching. The information provided by this meta-study, along with that of the survey, served as the basis for the designing of the Common Competence Framework. This framework provides an example of convergence in teacher education programmes, a key objective of European cooperation in this field.
The CCF comprises 17 competences organised in 5 competence areas and indicators are provided for each competence.
