‘An Introduction to NCELP’ – online conference held on 20 November 2020
Over 200 language teachers from all over England came together on 20 November to learn about our research-informed MFL teaching approaches and resources.
Our online conference ‘An Introduction to NCELP‘ included sessions on Phonics, Vocabulary, Grammar, Assessment, NCELP Schemes of Work and Computer Assisted Language Learning, all delivered by Lead School teachers in our Hub network.
During the conference a teacher demonstrated use of our new MultiLingProfiler, a lexical profiling tool for French, German and Spanish, developed by NCELP in partnership with Prof. Laurence Anthony (Waseda University).
We also introduced Gaming Grammar, a freely available digital game designed to support foreign language grammar teaching and learning.
Feedback from attendees
“Really well organised, engaging and easy to follow with a lot of effort put in from teachers. Great to see their enthusiasm about participating in the project and how well their students are doing!”
“Having had some CPD previously on the NCELP schemes of work at ALL Yorkshire/Humber events, I really appreciated seeing the application of the resources by teachers. I would very much like to see NCELP being a nation-wide approach being taken into Key Stage 4. Thank you so much for an excellent conference!”
“The session was helpful and made me realise that with NCELP teaching MFL shouldn’t be stressful or boring but engaging and fun.”
“I thought the presenters were really good – they spoke with knowledge and experience of what NCELP is doing. Real teachers with real experience – this is so valuable.”

Our new Key Stage 3 schemes of work are free, Ofsted-aligned and available for French, German and Spanish. They aim to improve curriculum design, pupil progression and motivation through the three key strands of phonics, vocabulary and grammar.
