SCILT is committed to supporting research into languages education at local, national and international level.
Recent SCILT research:
Language Learning in Scotland: A 1+2 Approach - The final report and recommendations for language learning in Scotland from the Scottish Government's Languages Working Group. Published in May 2012.
Modern Languages Excellence Group Report - The recently published Modern Languages Excellence Group Report offers a blueprint to secure, promote and enhance the provision of Modern Languages in Scotland. It does this by demonstrating the vital importance to Scotland of developing the language skills of our young people and by exemplifying how, through Curriculum for Excellence, this can be achieved. Published March 2011.
National survey of Modern Language provision - In August 2011, SCILT carried out a national survey of language provision in Scottish state-funded primary and secondary schools via two online questionnaires.
