I’d like to start by thanking everyone for their contributions to this edition of the 1+2 newsletter. I always feel privileged that Scotland’s languages community is so willing to share and work together towards the full implementation of Language Learning in Scotland: A 1+2 approach.
As usual at SCILT, you can keep up-to-date with all our activities via the weekly e-bulletin. I’d like to offer my thanks to all of you who have answered surveys on a range of SCILT programmes such as our professional learning offer, our planned Languages and Employability Award and the new version of the SCILT website. Your honest feedback, comments and advice contribute greatly to informing our planning and help us ensure that we meet the needs of all our stakeholders.
The SCILT professional learning menu is now online offering a range of workshops suitable for all sectors. In addition, this year we have included a range of webinars that can be joined as live events or watched anytime, at practitioners’ convenience. The SCILT team can also support professional learning partnerships, working with local authority development officers and teaching staff to effect positive change through professional dialogue and collaboration. If any of these activities are of interest to you and your colleagues, please contact SCILT.
As we look toward the new academic session 2019/20, the SCILT team continues to be excited by the prospect of working with so many committed professionals. It is our privilege to be able to support language learning across the country as we move into the final years of the implementation of Scotland’s language policy.
