Scotland's National Centre for Languages
SCILT is the national centre for languages, supporting a wealth of language learning and diversity across Scotland’s schools and communities. As a nation, we are developing the language skills that equip us for life in a globally interdependent world, thus contributing to a fairer, smarter, more successful Scotland. We achieve this by promoting and supporting high-quality language learning and fostering a climate that celebrates all languages.
SCILT receives a grant from the Scottish Government to fund its core activities.
SCILT has three core priorities:
- to support high quality language learning and teaching in line with national priorities
- to highlight and demonstrate the benefits of multilingualism and intercultural competencies so that languages are widely recognised as a key skill for life and work
- to share information and language-related research, and facilitate knowledge exchange in Scotland and beyond.
