The ECEP project aims – as it was the case of previous ones like IMPEL, E-PORTFOLIO, VALEUR, LEA – at building self-confidence among language teachers, whose image and mission are too often suffering from social, technological and political (in particular supranational) changes. This should enable them to develop a free and autonomous attitude towards the Common European Framework, beyond the debates "for or against". These debates exist even at a high level and too often hide the fact that the Framework is ... a framework.
The project aims at reinforcing the status, the image of teachers as well as their professionalism, in order to help them feel more confident and conscious and to enable them to adapt the Framework without cultural or personal reserves, and that through several steps:
- awareness of possible positive contributions of their spontaneous knowledge of evaluation and assessment;
- understanding of both stakes and freedoms of the Common European Framework;
- appropriation of the framing lines and the operational steps suggested by the Framework starting from some key concepts;
- implementation of the principles of the CEF and other European documents on the basis of personal reflection, and in a way that suits the variety of cultural contexts, in order to support the consistency of the teaching process within the respect of diversity.
