MFL in KS3: Developing a culture of practice which leads to fluency

Building on the recommendations from the 2016 TSC MFL Pedagogy Review this course will explore how Language teachers can adapt their practice in KS3 to focus on fluency leading to improved student efficacy and outcomes.

This course is designed to ensure MFL teachers have a strong theoretical understanding of the factors underpinning improved student outcomes in KS3. Course participants will have an opportunity to practise and refine their classroom practice as well as developing a bespoke strategic plan for languages in KS3 in their own school.

This course will be led by Tracy Williams, the ATLP’s MFL Lead with additional input from three experienced teachers with expertise in French, Spanish and German.

Run over a period of five months, the course will comprise 5 face to face sessions, self-directed study and 2 coaching conversations.
