The handbook sets out the expectations of the role of Language Co-ordinator, and subsequently aims to provide guidance, sample documentation and templates to support the work of the Languages Co-ordinator in:

  • articulating a vision for language learning in the primary school;
  • languages policy creation;
  • curriculum planning and design;
  • monitoring standards of teaching and learning;
  • assessing and reporting progress;
  • leading and developing other teachers of languages; and
  • raising the profile of language learning in the school and local community.

These materials are aimed at an audience of teachers who will be teaching pupils at KS2. Languages of exemplification in the materials and follow-up modules are French, German and Spanish. These materials 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.

Welcome to the ALL Connect KS2 Language Co-ordinator’s Handbook module

This is the training module designed to accompany the KS2 Language Co-ordinator’s Handbook resource, and is specifically for KS2 Language Co-ordinators in primary schools.

There are five themed modules for KS2 teachers of languages and two KS2-KS3 modules. The modules are not sequential, and are presented here in four formats:

  • A Powerpoint presentation for use in a training session
  • A pdf for Trainers to use in preparing for a training session; this includes the notes pages that accompany the Powerpoint screens
  • A Powerpoint presentation for selfaccess by a practising teacher or trainee (this version does not include discussion and has reduced notes) in case you wish to view the Powerpoint separately from the Notes
  • A pdf of the Self Access notes page – you might like to access this version in order to have the Notes visible at the same time as the screens.

The materials of this module are aimed at an audience of teachers who will be teaching pupils at KS2. Languages of exemplification in the materials and follow-up modules are French, German and Spanish. These materials 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.

The format of the module is as follows:

A presentation for delivery by a Lead Teacher to a workshop of teacher participants. The workshop duration is planned to be two hours, in which the presentation and accompanying materials / resources and activities should be presented.

Teachers using the self-access version should also expect to take around the same length of time.

Following delivery of a workshop, teacher participants will undertake independent study of the KS2 Language Co-ordinator’s Handbook itself.

 

Materials in sequential order:

You will need to download these materials when you click through to them. If you are a Lead Teacher we suggest you do so before you deliver a workshop session.
