Nice to meet you!!

It’s been great to meet so many interested teachers, researchers and academics recently. Please do have a look round and fill in the survey if you’re a head teacher or head of languages, or a Year 10 student – or feel free to pass on the link to people you know who are!

NEW mini-surveys for Headteachers and Heads of MFL

New mini surveys have gone live – head teachers and heads of languages, if you haven’t already completed a survey for this project, it would be wonderful if you would give two minutes of your time to share your views as part of a national study of languages in secondary schools. It’s all online, just click on the ‘survey’ page to take part.

NEW Year 10 survey!!

A new survey has gone live!! Year 10 students can take part at school or in their own time – it should only take 2 minutes and you can do it on your phone or on the computer.

Don’t let the name mislead you – even if you’re not doing a language you can take part 🙂

UPDATE: Now also available to download & print for those who would prefer paper copies!

A great response…. so far!!

There’s still time to get involved!

Thank you to all the headteachers and heads of MFL who’ve taken part in the survey so far… What a fantastic response! But we need more participants. So that the survey gives as broad a picture of language provision in English state schools as possible, and as deep an insight into decision-making around languages as possible, we need the highest number of responses possible. That means, if you’re a headteacher or a head of languages as you haven’t taken part yet, now is the time! Your views are so valuable and your participation is hugely appreciated.

Of course, it’s not just about staff. The students’ views are also incredibly important, so headteachers have the opportunity to sign up for more information about hosting a visit, during which Year 10 students can complete their own survey and give us their perspective. Schools taking part in this phase can also take advantage of a free seminar on the findings and their implications later in the project.

New opportunities to take part in MFL research!

Calling head teachers and heads of languages in England!

The opportunity to be involved in research into Modern Languages in schools has been developed and extended. Take part in a project looking at the languages which are taught in schools and the choices which are made by schools and students regarding MFL.

The findings will shed light on the motivating factors behind students’ choice of language and take-up of the subject, giving schools additional information to assist with the planning of future language provision, including ways of increasing opportunities for students to access EBacc pathways and encouraging languages study with the Progress 8 measure. Participating schools will be eligible for a free seminar or workshop on the findings and their implications for their school.
