About us

The Toolkit team

This toolkit has been developed by Post-Primary Languages Ireland (PPLI) in collaboration with Dublin-Dun Laoghaire Education and Training Board (DDLETB). 

The European Centre for Modern Languages (ECML) developed a project called A Roadmap to Support the Languages of Schooling. Both for PPLI and DDLETB were involved in the project with the ECML and decided to localise the project for the Irish post-primary context.  The result is this toolkit for self-evaluation and support for intercultural and linguistic diversity in schools wishing to address inclusion.  We acknowledge the ECML support in the process.
