The Portuguese Education Department is under the administration of Camões, Instituto da Cooperação e da Língua I.P., the main public body that supervises Portuguese Education in Germany. Based in the Embassy of Portugal in Berlin, this department counts on the support of Regional Education Assistance Offices at the General-Consulates in Hamburg, Düsseldorf and Stuttgart.

The Portuguese Education Department is essentially a space for logistic and informative support of education, promotion and dissemination of the Portuguese language, not only as a heritage language but also as L2. In this context our main activities are: organizing the courses “Portuguese Language and Culture” at primary and secondary levels; assessing competences in Portuguese; ensuring the presence of Portuguese lecturers in German universities; coordinating the teaching activities of teachers and lecturers; providing support to the Portuguese community with respect to issues related to education; streamlining projects that promote the Portuguese language and culture, as well as encouraging the exchange between Portuguese and German cultures.
