Schools in Edinburgh are implementing the Scottish government’s new education policy with the support of Language Assistants in the classroom. With the 1+2 language policy, students must learn two languages in addition to English, providing a unique approach to language learning in the UK. As a result, local authorities are using additional funding from the Scottish government to support the ‘1+2 languages model’, recruiting Language Assistants and making them accessible across their network schools.
