Accreditation is GO!

Author: Lynne Jones, SCILT

Train the Trainer (TTT) is an extended professional learning programme run by SCILT and Education Scotland which was accredited with “Professional recognition: leading learning in languages” by GTC Scotland a year ago. TTT is aimed at local authority development officers and other practitioners who have, or aspire to have, a strategic leadership role in the implementation of the 1+2 Approach to language learning.

At the time of going to press, 13 participants have successfully completed both formative and summative assessment elements and been awarded their certificate of professional recognition. Hoping to achieve the same, a further 20 participants will soon submit their final reflective reports.

The fourth Train the Trainer cohort will embark on a week-long summer school on 27 June 2016. The content of the programme has been significantly revised this year, with an even greater focus on leadership and strategy. Hopefully, the proportion of participants who go down the accreditation route will continue to rise.

At the mid-point of the implementation period for the 1+2 Approach, it is especially pleasing to be in a position to recognise and celebrate the depth and range of commitment and leadership development of Train the Trainer participants.
