Speaking the same language at national meeting

12 February 2019 (Education Scotland)

‘Looking Beyond 1+2’ was the focus of the annual National Modern Languages Network meeting in Stirling this month.

The day saw the launch of the new National Modern Languages Hub on GLOW, incorporating a new Yammer forum and bringing together policy, resources and CLPL for practitioners delivering languages for Scotland’s learners.

Participants heard updates from:

  • SQA on changes to Advanced Higher
  • Larbert High School cluster on their award-winning approach to implementing the 1+2 approach to language learning
  • Dr Joe Carson, St Andrews University, on the challenge of a first year university course in French
  • SCILT on how the Developing the Young Workforce agenda and language learning can work together

Colleagues ended the day by taking time to share their priorities for implementing the Language Learning in Scotland: A 1+2 Approach​ in their local authorities.

The 1+2 approach is the Scottish Government’s policy aimed at ensuring that every child has the opportunity to learn a modern language from P1 until the end of the broad general education (S3).
