NCLE CPD webinar series

Webinar overview

This online webinar will focus on how to apply for a Modern Language Assistant for your school and explore options to make this financially viable for your school.  As the MFLPR2016 highlights: Pupils ‘should have opportunities to interact with native speakers, both in person and through video links.’ 

The session will include a case study from a head of languages on how Modern Language Assistants have benefitted their language department, their learners and the wider school, good practice ideas on making the most of the Assistant and reflections from an Assistant working in a UK school.

The session will be led by Vicky Gough.
