European Language Label Award 2021

 

Do you know of a creative, innovative and inspirational language learning initiative, or one that promotes the importance of languages? Then apply for a European Language Label Award in 2021!

The European Language Label (ELL) Award is coordinated by the European Commission. It highlights and rewards innovative initiatives in language teaching, learning and promotion, and brings these initiatives to the attention of the public along with professionals in the languages field.

The ELL is open to all fields of education and training. No project is too big or too small, and both accredited and non-accredited initiatives are encouraged to apply. Whether it’s a football team, university, community group, school, youth group, company, or choir – we want to hear your stories of language learning being brought to life!

ELL applications must support one or more of these eight categories:

  1. Multilingual schools and classrooms
  2. Language-friendly society
  3. Languages for the future
  4. Using technology to enhance language learning techniques
  5. Newcomers to Erasmus+ and eTwinning
  6. Professional development of language teachers
  7. Language learning and promotion of equity, social cohesion and active citizenship
  8. Supporting the teaching and learning of Irish

These categories support the award’s aims along with those of Languages Connect. The Digital Strategy for Schools is also supported in category 6.

Apply online now before the deadline of Tuesday 1 June 2021.  Entrants will be notified of the results by 4 September 2021. All winners will receive an award and certificate at the award ceremony in Dublin on 11 November 2021. 

Please read the Competition Guidelines, including Terms and Conditions, before applying.

More about the award

Léargas has managed the ELL in Ireland since 1999. More than one hundred fifty educational, training and community groups and language teachers, learners and ambassadors have received the ELL.

Previous winners have said that “receiving external validation from such a respected organisation was a huge boost for the organisation and our team”. The European Language Label is not limited to European languages; teaching or learning of any language can be considered.
