Schweizerische Konferenz der kantonalen Erziehungsdirektoren (EDK)

The Swiss Language Portfolio is published by the EDK. The EDK coordinates its work with the Council of Europe and is the contact point for questions concerning the ELP on a national level. The Language Portfolio makes an important contribution to the educational promotion of multilingualism at all school levels and is among the recommendations set out in the national strategy for the further development of language teaching, which the EDK adopted in 2004. Article 9 of the inter-cantonal agreement on the harmonisation of compulsory education (HarmoS-Concordat) provides for the use of individual portfolios in this and other disciplines.
