Language Hub Courses 2022/23


The National Centre for Excellence for Language Pedagogy (NCELP) have announced details of their professional development for language teachers in 2022/23. The following courses are available:

Blended MFL Curriculum Design & Pedagogy – Self Study with Teach Meets

Covering 5 modules that teachers complete independently – on the principles of curriculum design, phonics, vocabulary, grammar and culture – each session complemented by a 60-minute dedicated Teach-Meet, led by one of the NCELP’s experienced Course Leaders. This is suitable for teachers who:

  • Are involved in Modern Foreign Language education (and can cascade course content to MFL colleagues, including to in-service and/or pre-service teachers or trainees).
  • EITHER working in an eligible school in England (that teaches French and/or German and/or Spanish) – schools that receive public funding from the government are eligible OR a state-funded university-based or SCITT-based teacher trainer providing courses to secondary pre-service teachers or trainees in French and/or German and/or Spanish teaching.

Research-Informed French, German and Spanish Teaching at KS3 & KS4

NCELP have a free self-study course offering the opportunity for teachers to develop a comprehensive understanding of the 2016 Modern Foreign Language Pedagogy Review recommendations, providing a springboard for any curriculum and pedagogy development planning in light of the new subject content for GCSE French, German and Spanish. Find out more here.

Briefings on the new MFL GCSE subject content

NCELP are delivering multiple online briefings for MFL Heads of Department, Subject Leaders or MFL teachers through October, November and December. All briefings are running on Mondays 3.45-4.45pm, Wednesdays and Fridays 4-5pm. To find a date click here.

Themed MFL Team Teach Events

These NCELP sessions offer input led by current Course Leaders, on a spotlight theme of Curriculum Design, Phonics, Vocabulary or Grammar coupled with an ‘ask the practitioner’ opportunity. Drawing on their knowledge as expert practitioners of the NCELP’s Schemes of Work, the session leaders will also share plenty of examples of the resources they use in their everyday teaching. Sessions will be online during November and December Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 3.45-4.45pm. To find the right Team Teach session for you click here.
