SCILT now has its own European Language Portfolio (ELP) for Scottish primary pupils and it has been registered with the Council of Europe. The ELP is managed and organised by learners themselves and can be used in the following ways:
The Teacher’s Guide provides the full rationale for using this model as well as helpful information on each section.
Our ELP model has been converted into a digital format enabling pupils to input data electronically:

The ELP is divided into three sections:
The Language Biography encourages pupils to think about and celebrate the languages they experience outside the classroom, at home, in the community or whilst on holiday. It also helps them reflect on their own learning.
The Language Dossier helps pupils to organise and gather the evidence of what they can do, say, write or make and encourages them to record the skills they feel that they have developed.
The Languages Passport encourages pupils to track their progress and identify their next steps. It includes a page where the teacher can make a holistic comment about how much and how far pupils have developed their learning.
SCILT Short Life Working Group
In September 2011, SCILT invited representatives from a range of local authorities and partner organisations to take part in a MLPS working group. The primary aim was to create a short-life group to focus on key recommendations for MLPS planning and transition. The outcomes of Short Life Working Group include recommendations as well as resources on planning, embedding language learning and transition.

Assessment at transition - executive summary (University of Glasgow, 2012) - The Assessment at Transition project was funded by the Scottish Government and undertaken by the University of Glasgow. The project set out to explore how shared understandings of the purposes and potential of assessment at transition between primary and secondary might be developed most effectively. This research project was designed to explore how research might be used to support the better alignment of policy and practice.
More information, including a presentation relating to the report, can be accessed through Education Scotland website.
