SCILT and Education Scotland are now able to offer two places to each local authority on our 1+2 Train the Trainerautumn session. The week long course will take place at the University of Strathclyde from Monday 27th October to Friday 31st October. The course is aimed at key people in local authorities who will be responsible for training others to take forward Primary Language Learning (PLL). Participants will already have a level of language at SCQF 6 (Higher or equivalent) and although the course will focus on pedagogy, exemplification will be in French. This should not, of course, exclude people with other languages as the ideas and strategies we discuss will be completely transferrable. Expressions of interest should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30th September 2014.
