Primary Language Learning for early phase teachers
In recent years, SCILT’s support for student teachers and newly qualified teachers (NQTs) has expanded enormously. SCILT facilitates Primary Language Learning pedagogy courses for primary education students at the Universities of Edinburgh, Stirling, Glasgow, Strathclyde, Universities of Highlands & Islands and Dundee.
These inputs aim to build the confidence of student teachers, regardless of their level of expertise in another language. The focus is upon embedding language learning in the classroom routine and providing contextualised language learning experiences with the key message are that a little language goes a long way.
Feedback from the workshops has been extremely positive with former students recommending the course to others and expressing how useful the content has been in their careers.
At the request of local authorities, SCILT designs and facilitates bespoke PLL inputs of varying length and content for Primary NQTs in Scotland.
