Working with Teachers

Teacher Training

Through King's College London's Modern Language Centre, and in conjunction with the Lambeth Teaching Schools' Alliance (LTSA), we hold a series of French and Spanish teacher training seminars every year. These are designed for recently qualified and experienced language teachers who teach French and Spanish at GCSE and A-Level. Course objectives include:

  • Increasing oral and written communicative skills in French and Spanish
  • Developing a deeper understanding of French and Spanish language structures
  • Developing strategies to support students’ progress through formative assessment

See the full programme for this year's upcoming Spanish GCSE and A Level teacher training here:

Teachers' Forum

Primary and secondary school teachers are also invited to participate in a Teachers’ Forum to continue to develop networks between schools and universities. One of the focal points is working with the curriculum, shared resources, and curriculum development, as well as thinking about transitions in Modern Languages learning and development at each point of the curriculum, up to and including into the first year of university study.

Network for Languages London

network

In 2019 Network for Languages London, a CPD network providing training, support, advice and networking opportunities for languages teachers in primary, secondary and further education, moved from the University of Westminster to its new base at King's College London. Language Acts has taken over the running of the Network and will continue to provide events and activities, working with its project partners.

The Network's website was archived, and all future Network events will be advertised here. Further details of where to access Network resources will be provided once the archiving process is complete.

Language Acts would like to thank the Network's coordinator Domini Stone for her tireless enthusiasm, efficiency and effort which have ensured the success of the Network and that of its predecessor Links Into Languages over the past ten years.
