There is growing interest in national and regional contexts for standard-setting in areas such as evaluation, approaches to quality control and management. In the first mediumterm programme the ECML project "Quality Assurance and Self-assessment for Schools and Teachers" developed a CD-Rom entitled "Quality Management in Language Education". Building on the outcomes of this project, this publication - a training guide for teacher trainers and multipliers responsible for quality assurance in language teaching at various levels in the educational system - has been produced. The guide aims to provide them with a complementary tool for this work, linking theory to practice with illustrative case studies from a variety of sources.
