The programme aims to boost the number of students taking languages like French, German and Spanish at GCSE and A levels. It will promote teaching methods in linealigned with those set out in Ofqual chair Ian Bauckham’s 2016 Modern Foreign Languages Pedagogy Review.

This is a welcome move from the DfE, as it recognises the importance of languages in preparing young people for the global workforce. Languages are beneficial for employment prospects and for developing cultural understanding and communication skills.

With Brexit looming, it is more important than ever that young people have the opportunity to learn languages. This programme will ensure that all students have access to language learning opportunities, regardless of their background or school.

We hope this programme will increase the number of students taking languages at GCSE and A level and ultimately help close the EBacc gap.
