Fachstelle für Berufsspezifische Sprachkompetenzen von Sprachenlehrpersonen PHSG

Centre for teachers’ language competences

The centre conducts research, development, consulting and in-service education in the area of teachers’ language competences (foreign languages and the language of schooling). The activities build on preliminary projects financed by the Federal Office of Culture in which the profession-related language competence profiles for foreign language teachers were developed.

Two of the specialist unit’s current focal areas are the formative and summative assessment of these language competences, for which an online platform was created in 2015-2017, and the piloting and further development of the language competence profiles for other educational contexts.
