Recommendation nine in Language learning in Scotland: A 1+2 Approach states that, 'language learning be recognised as an entitlement for all young people through to the end of their broad general education, S1 to S3' (Scottish Government, 2012: 41).
A case study illustrating how staff, learners, parents and carers at Corseford School in Renfrewshire are using inclusive pedagogies and technologies such as alternative and augmentative communication systems to support the teaching and learning of Spanish has recently been published on the SCILT website.
Corseford School supports children and young people with complex health, education, movement and communication needs, and is one of two schools in the country run by Capability Scotland. In June 2015, Corseford School was the proud recipient of the 'Making Languages Come Alive' category in the Scottish Education Awards.
With Spanish now embedded as L2, staff at Corseford hope to introduce Gaelic as an L3 in the course of this academic session.
