The call for applications is now open for the asynchronous version of our NCELP Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Course.
Our CPD course takes an in-depth look at KS3/4 Modern Foreign Language (MFL) currriculum design and pedagogy. The asynchronous version of the CPD course has been developed for participants who wish to work flexibly through the modules at a personalised pace and is open to all those involved in Modern Foreign Language education.
The course will open on the NCELP Learning Management System (LMS) week commencing 25 April 2022 and will remain open until Sunday 13 November 2022. The course will include five 2.5hr modules of recorded content and learning activities.
Applications for the asynchronous course will close at midnight on Sunday 2 October 2022.
About our CPD Courses
Our FREE CPD course offers an unparalleled opportunity for teachers to develop a comprehensive understanding of the 2016 Modern Foreign Language (MFL) 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. The course is in line with the:
- 2016 MFL Pedagogy Review recommendations
- 2021 Ofsted research review
- New Subject Content for French, German and Spanish GCSE – for first teaching in 2024 with first exams in summer 2026.
The course is designed for those new to NCELP approaches, though it would also suit participants who want to develop their understanding further (for example teachers who have already adopted NCELP Schemes of Work (SOW)).
Alongside the asynchronous course call, we are also accepting applications for our Autumn Term courses which are instructor-led (by specialist teachers) and consist of five 2.5hr zoom sessions with peer and instructor support. The Autumn Term courses are open to those working in an eligible school in England (that teaches French and/or German and/or Spanish) 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.
