Save The Date! The 1+2 Languages Leadership Programme 2020

24 January 2020 (SCILT/Education Scotland)

SCILT and Education Scotland will be accepting applications from 24th January to attend the flagship national leadership programme that has been running since 2014 and was recognised at GTCS Excellence in Professional Learning Awards in 2017 and 2018.

The 2020-21 programme comprises a 4 day Summer School in July 2020 with further optional elements in Spring and Summer 2021 which can lead towards the award of GTCS Professional Recognition: Leading Learning in Languages. This year the Summer School will take place from Monday 29th June to Thursday 2nd July 2020 at the University of Strathclyde’s city centre campus in Glasgow. 

This Masters level programme supports schools, clusters and local authorities to build leadership capacity and is completely free of charge for educators in the public sector. Altogether up to 50 places will be available to post-probationer teachers or teacher educators who have, or aspire to have, a role in leading languages education for young people, families and colleagues in and beyond their own workplace.

Applications close on Friday 3rd April. Before submitting your application, we would encourage you to discuss with your headteacher/line manager which should focus on how you might make the most of this professional learning in your context in the future.
