Centre for Teachers’ Language Competences
The specialist unit provides research, development, consulting and training services in the field of occupation-specific language skills (in both foreign languages and the respective language of schooling) for teachers. Its activities pick up on preliminary projects financed by the Federal Office of Culture that sought to develop occupation-specific language skills profiles for foreign language teachers.
Two of the specialist unit’s current focal areas are the formative and summative evaluation of these language skills. Between 2015 and 2017, it created a corresponding online platform and conducted test and development work on language skills profiles for additional educational contexts.
