Event Details

Recommendation 4 of the ‘1+2 Report’ states:

‘The Working Group recommends that a second additional language (L3) be introduced for pupils at a later stage in the primary school. The time for introduction of the L3 language would be…….no later than P5.’

Recommendation 11 states:

‘The Working Group recommends schools develop language learning for L3 during the broad general education, choosing from a range of approaches………’

As one would expect, schools and authorities are at different stages in their preparations for L3. Further guidance on L3 has been produced by Education Scotland and is available on their website and the SCILT website - 'A 1+2 approach to language learning - Further guidance on L3 within the 1+2 policy' under the Guidance tab. A range of approaches to the delivery of L3 in both primary and secondary schools is described in the guidance. Understandably, L3 remains the area where most schools and local authorities are still at the planning stage or are at the early stages of delivery.

This event will involve three presentations where speakers describe how they have begun working on L3 in their school or local authority. Much of this work is relatively new and some is at the trialling stage. Each speaker offers a different approach.

There will be dedicated time to ask questions and to engage in discussion with colleagues. Each event will be supported by representatives from SCILT and Education Scotland.

Scotland's National Centre for Languages

Our vision is to promote and support the delivery of high quality language learning within a climate which celebrates all languages. Scotland is already a multi-cultural society where many languages are spoken. This includes indigenous, Scottish languages and those originating from further afield. We want to play our part in ensuring that all languages and cultures are valued and that life-long language learning is recognised as a key skill for life and work. Our vision is one where language skills make a significant contribution to a fairer, smarter and more successful Scotland.
