Free self-study CPD Course: MFL Curriculum Design and Pedagogy for KS3 and GCSE


Research-informed French, German and Spanish teaching at KS3 and KS4 for higher uptake and greater success at GCSE

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 self-study (asynchronous) version of our CPD course takes an in-depth look at KS3/4 MFL curriculum design and pedagogy and has been developed for participants who wish to work flexibly through the modules at a personalised pace and for those who are not eligible to participate in our synchronous course. The course will include five 2.5hr modules of recorded content and learning activities.

We welcome applications from all those involved in Modern Foreign Language education.

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).
