Abstract

In December 1995, the Education Commission published Report Number 6 (ECR6), passing two issues to the Advisory Committee on Teacher Education and Qualifications (ACTEQ) for the latter’s consideration and action. These were: (1) That minimum language proficiency standards should be met by all teachers in their chosen medium of instruction. (2) That levels of language and professional competence (‘benchmark’ qualifications) should be established for all language teachers. This chapter describes the initial 1996 benchmark consultancy study and what emerged from it. Copyright © 2018 Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
