Event Date: 11/06/2024 09:00 - 10:00

British Council, GCHQ and the Civil Service Languages Network are working together to promote language learning among pupils in UK schools.

Your 12-14-year-old pupils, who will soon be choosing their Nationals subjects, are invited to an open, online event, where they will hear from speakers with different roles across government who have used languages in their career, and how either studying a language in school, or speaking a heritage language, has improved their life. Pupils will have the chance to ask the speakers questions (via their teacher) through a Q&A session.

If you would like pupils from your school to attend, please contact, with numbers, and which languages would be most relevant. The online format allows thousands of students to watch for free, but you will need a password.
