The revised national languages leadership programme welcomed its largest cohort in June 2017. Under its new name the 1+2 Languages Leadership Programme, or 1+2 LLP for short, now provides a balance of practice and theory, offering a greater choice of workshops and a range of presenters from across the country, representing a wider diversity of languages. This free programme, hosted in partnership by Education Scotland and SCILT, opens with a week-long summer school and carries the option of Professional Recognition from the GTCS.
In a typical piece of feedback about the 2017 summer school, one participant described the experience: “Very worthwhile in so many ways. I have taken away some great ideas, input, insights and ammunition to help me continue with the campaign to embed the 1+2 policy and maintain the very important place of languages in our Scottish curriculum. I am grateful for this opportunity and for the chance to have met some great colleagues and practitioners.”
For the upcoming 2018-19 cohort, the summer school will take place at the University of Strathclyde from Monday 2 to Friday 6 July 2018. Applications for the free places will be accepted from individual teachers or teacher educators who have, or aspire to have, a leadership role in the implementation of the 1+2 Approach in their setting. All applications will be considered on their merits; there will be no requirement for applicants to seek nomination from a local authority/TEI representative. Information about the 2018-19 programme and call for applicants will be disseminated through all the regular communication channels at SCILT and Education Scotland in early 2018.
