Connecting up language learning around the country
ALL has received funding from the Department for Education to provide CPD on the new curriculum for teachers in KS2 and KS3.
The ALL Connect project will operate initially in the North East, East and the North Midlands regions working in partnership with Regional Co-ordinators at Comberton Village College in Cambridgeshire; the North Leadership Centre, part of the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences at Newcastle University (which houses Network for Languages North East and is co-ordinating the North East Teaching Schools Partnership); and Network for Languages East Midlands, a specialist centre within the School of Arts & Humanities at Nottingham Trent University.
The project will offer free face to face and online training on major themes such as speaking, writing, grammar, transition and progression, coupled with a wider ‘enhancement’ programme for teachers, allowing them to take control of their professional development, and access a broad range of professional development opportunities and international activities.
This activity is in addition to ALL’s growing network of Primary Hubs, providing local, school-to-school support across the country. Many of these new Hubs are offering training and upskilling courses for primary teachers to get the confidence and the skills that they need – and they will also be able to access this new training.
