The presentation will compare and contrast the two models of introducing CLIL programs - top-down in Qatar and bottom-up in Poland and what implication they have for in-service teacher training as well as the concept of CLIL teacher competencies. The Qatari example will be based on the British Council's Academic Language Support Programme (2008-2011), while the Polish one will be based on the annual workshops for Geography bilingual teachers organised by the Association of Adult Educators in Torun (since 2006). The Qatari project included courses in General English as well as modules in Classroom Language and CLIL specific methodology. In Poland, however, there are no such governmental programs and the gap is filled in by various institutions, including the one mentioned here. The author was/has been engaged in both programs as a teacher trainer.
