Our CPD Courses provide an unparalleled opportunity for teachers to develop a comprehensive understanding of the 2016 Modern Foreign Languages 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.
Curriculum Design and Pedagogy – Asynchronous
This course is open to all those involved in MFL education and is therefore particularly suited to colleagues who are not eligible for our other CPD courses.
Format: 5 x self-study modules
Completers of our CPD courses will also have the opportunity to attend an online ‘next steps’ collegial planning session as you prepare to enact any curricular and pedagogical developments in light of the CPD course content.
As an experienced MFL teacher and subject leader, I would wholeheartedly recommend this course. I really liked the fact that it was split into different sessions, allowing for reflection time and space to trial ideas between them. Our facilitator was knowledgeable and perhaps most importantly, an MFL teacher herself. As such, she could give us some great insight into how the NCELP curriculum design had impacted on the progress of her own students. It was refreshing to feel truly inspired by CPD and it has really made me think about my own approach to curriculum as I look towards the new GCSE and the challenges and opportunities it will bring.
