Event Date: 24/06/2024 09:30 - 16:00

At a time when French, as a subject of study, is struggling to keep its position as one the major foreign languages studied at secondary school and university levels in Scotland, it is more important than ever to assess the situation and share ideas and examples of good practice that are having a real impact on the ground.

This free one-day event, co-organised by SCILT and the University of Strathclyde will give us the opportunity to:

  1. Take stock of the situation in Scotland across the secondary education and higher education sectors;
  2. Offer a platform for initiatives looking to promote language learning in general and French in particular, including potential partnership with French counterparts;
  3. Share experiences and good practice amongst secondary school and university teachers.

The aim of The Future of French en Écosse conference is to provide a forum for all stakeholders, a place and time for assessing the situation and for building a positive future for French in Scotland.

Join us on Monday 24 June 2024 for the first national forum on the Future of French en Écosse!
