Programme Consultants

As part of its quality assurance procedures, the ECML calls on the assistance of external programme consultants to provide feedback on ongoing activities, to contribute to the evaluation of projects and to review the publications and other results arising from them.
The consultants also contribute to transparency towards the Centre’s stakeholders by assisting in systematic and effective evaluation of the quality and impact of its activities, products and services. Finally, their involvement facilitates wider professional communication of the ECML’s work in the expert community.

ECML consultants are appointed for a four-year period covering a medium-term programme. They are chosen according to their professional expertise, their experience at European level and their commitment to reform in European language education.
