Short Life Working Group on Primary Languages

In September 2011, SCILT invited representatives from a range of local authorities and partner organisations to take part in a MLPS working group. Our primary aim was to create a short-life group to focus on key recommendations for MLPS planning and transition in order to better support our primary colleagues. At the outset, we identified many obstacles which MLPS teachers already face across the country and tried to channel our support into these areas.

The outcomes of Short Life Working Group are available from these pages. These include recommendations as well as resources and are organised under the categories of planning, embedding language learning and transition. The outcomes are included in the links above.
