2 2 We feel part of a multilingual Europe and we would like to give our contribution: for this reason we decided to apply for the European Language label. We believed in our project and in its strong European soul: our idea was confirmed by the award of the European Language Label (Kurt Brenner, representative of one of the French promoting institutions)

3 3 157 : awarded projects and initiatives in the period : National Agency responsible for the implementation of the European Language Label 1 : main event organized by the National Agency on the occasion of ELL 10 th anniversary

4 4 157 awarded projects in 11 years with an average of 14 awarded projects per year, but with a worrying drop in the past 3 years

5 5 More than half of the projects belong to the compulsory education. Positive results for the initial vocational training and University sectors. Pre-primary education, continuous vocational and tertiary training scored the lowest results.

6 6 French projects focus mainly on the intercultural awareness and the use of relatively innovative approaches in language teaching (TELL, CLIL)

7 7 English represents the main language, but the gap with other languages (German, French and Spanish overall) is less developed

8 8 The national management of the European Language Label in France is under the control of the Europe-Education-Formation France National Agency. The Agency is a public interest group under the patronage of three different Ministries: the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, the Ministry of National Education, the Ministry of Labour

10 10 With reference to the Management activity, the National Agency is involved in 3 main actions: Creation and publication of the call for proposals Selection of winning projects Organization of the awarding ceremony

11 11 The main purpose of the call for proposals is to inform about the objectives of the Label and the procedure for the presentation of the candidatures and to provide guidance for the submission of the application form. The call for proposals is promoted through: Organization of events to promote the information about the ELL Publication of the information about the call for tenders on several websites Advertising on national press and on Internet search engines

14 14 On the occasion of the 10 th anniversary of the European Language Label, the Europe-Education-Formation France National Agency decided to organize a special ceremony to award the best language projects which had already received the European Language Label The awarded projects were inserted in a publication, edited and diffused by the National Agency

15 15 The National Agency implemented a specific section of the National Agencys web site dedicated to the ELL providing information about the label: who can participate, target languages, selection criteria, how to participate… On its web site, the Europe-Education-Formation France National Agency makes available a specific section containing the Yearly Reports, the main results and the official documents which can be useful for project promoters who intend to submit their application

16 16 In addition to the previous activities, the Europe- Education-Formation France National Agency identifies National Priorities that are relevant for the improvement of language learning in France.
