Network for Languages London

Network for Languages London provides professional development opportunities, support, advice and networking opportunities for teachers in primary, secondary and further education.

The London Schools Excellence Fund (LSEF) project which is part funded by the Department for Education, has been established by the Mayor to focus on raising the quality of teaching in primary and secondary schools and improving pupils’ attainment in core subjects, including languages.

An award from this fund has enabled the Network for Languages London team to work with primary and secondary schools across a number of London boroughs, such as Bexley, Brent, Havering, Lambeth, Tower Hamlets, Tri-borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham and Westminster, Waltham Forest and Wandsworth.

To date, over 130 teachers from over 50 schools from across London are involved in the project.

These videos are two of a set of five short films showcasing the work of the project.

Chalkhill School have taken a whole school approach to language learning. With the support of the LSEF project all staff teach some Spanish and children lean Spanish from nursery right through to Year 6.

At St Stephen’s School in Shepherds Bush, the Languages Coordinator has benefited from professional development opportunities and mentoring provided by LSEF tutors to support her language teaching. She, in turn, mentors less experienced colleagues, building their confidence and helping them to develop their language teaching skills.
