What does it involve?

Through a series of sessions that take place during the academic year (we suggest September – May) learners develop their teaching skills and prepare lessons to teach to younger learners.The process of preparation to teach involves micro-teaching and peer and teacher feedback.Teachers who deliver this Award devise their own schedules but include all of the elements described in the Award Course Overview document above.These are key requirements of the Language Leader Award course:

25-30 hours delivery of course
MFL teacher who can be explicit about aspects of pedagogy (ITT mentor)
Continuous assessment and feedback by teacher
Minimum of 1 hour (3 x 20 mins) language activity planned, delivered with whole class of younger learners and evaluated by the language leader (assessed by teacher)
