EPG – The European Profiling Grid» tresna bat da, hizkuntza-irakasleen gaitasunak biltzen dituena taula batean, non sei garapen-maila zehazten diren (irakasle hasiberriarengandik hasi eta irakasle adituarenganainokoa). Erreminta honen helburua da garapen profesionalean laguntzea hizkuntza-irakasleei.

Abstract
The European Profiling Grid (EPG) is an instrument that describes the competences of language teachers and presents them in tabular form spanning six phases of development. It is available in nine languages. Its aim is to support language teachers, whichever language they teach, in their own professional development.
It is also a tool for managers and coordinators who are responsible for assuring the quality of language education, and for trainers and mentors who provide support and in-service development opportunities for language teachers.
As its name suggests, the EPG is in the form of a grid or table. One axis is a list of categories of teacher competence; the other is a series of six ‘phases of development’ ranging from novice teacher to experienced and expert teacher. Each cell of the grid contains descriptors for one area of competence at one phase of development.

Aims
1 To validate and develop the original Profiling Grid, first created in 2006 for internal use by the language centres accredited against EAQUALS’ comprehensive quality criteria.
2 To produce a final version of the Grid in nine languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Bulgarian, Dutch, Turkish, Polish), and an electronic version in four languages (English, French, German and Spanish).
3 To prepare a User Guide to support various kinds of users in a range of teaching contexts.
