For decision makers

Linguistic and cultural diversity in classrooms, schools and societies is a reality and is growing – this should not be viewed merely as an obstacle and a problem to be solved but more as an asset and a potential benefit. The ELP is a concrete tool supporting all stakeholders with an interest in good quality education to use and further develop linguistic and cultural competences of pupils, students and adults for the benefit of the whole society.


For employers

As part of Europass, the Language Passport provides a summary of the owner’s proficiency in languages, while the Language Biography and Dossier in the ELP provide employers with a more detailed picture of his or her language and intercultural skills. The European Language Portfolio can also be used in workplace language training.
