Connecting up language learning around the country:

The Association for Language Learning‘s ALL Connect project provided CPD for teachers in KS2 and KS3 to support the new programmes of study at Key stages 2 and 3, offering free face to face and online training on major themes such as speaking, writing, grammar, transition and progression to those working in mainstream education. Training was provided at a local level to colleagues from the primary and secondary sectors, offering participants the opportunity to train and network with peers and to share best practice together.

The materials developed are now provided here, and are freely available for any teacher to use. They must not be used for commercial reasons such as training sessions where attendees are charged a delegate fee by a trainer/training organisation. They may not be used without acknowledgement of the original source. If you are using them for training purposes please email info@all-languages.org.uk to let us know, as it is of particular interest to us to know about coverage. You can find out more about the project on our website.

The notes below each screen have an indication of the timing, and a point when a break might be taken and cover 2 hours, without counting the break time. We suggest that, in preparation, Lead Teachers run through the session with the timing in mind to judge its practicability. We anticipate that some Lead Teachers may make judgements about moving more quickly through some sections (e.g. the introductory screens) to allow more time later in the session.

Teacher participants are asked to complete a simple action plan following each taught workshop. They are also asked to complete this when they complete each of the 4 follow-up modules over the subsequent weeks.The action plan pro forma can be accessed here: KS3 Translation Skills Action Plan.

You can also download the KS3 Translation Module Curriculum-checklist.
