As part of this focus on Internationalism, we are launching for the first time a Language Leader’s Award. Open to students in Years 9-13, it aims to develop creativity and skills in three areas:
- Teaching: Learning how to teach and teaching a session in a foreign languages MFL lesson to a primary or KS3 class and tutoring or being a buddy to another learner.
- Event organisation: Taking an active lead in MFL / Mandarin events this year
- Creating an MFL / Mandarin magazine: being part of the creative and production team
Students will also keep a log and reflect on what they have learnt.
These are the participating Language Leaders - all students who are passionate about languages, who want to make a difference using languages while developing leadership skills.
