This session will give attendees an overview of subject-specific interpretation of the Early Career Framework (ECF) for Modern Foreign Language (MFL) education. This subject-specific alignment is based on the work of The National Centre for Excellence for Language Pedagogy (NCELP). NCELP helps teachers deliver the recommendations of The MFL Pedagogy Review (2016) by drawing on international peer-reviewed research. This interactive session will highlight how NCELP’s work on curriculum design, resources, pedagogy, and assessment supports the development of Early Career Teachers by illustrating how principled and effective MFL education corresponds with the ECF’s expectations.
