We are delighted to be teaming up with GCHQ for this exciting day, allowing your students a peek behind the scenes at one of the UK’s intelligence services.

This event is aimed at your Year 10 linguists. It will appeal to students with a particular interest in developing their language and employability skills and finding out how they can be used in professional scenarios.

GCHQ plays a part in the fight against terrorism, drug trafficking, and other forms of serious crime, as well as providing support to miliatary operations across the world. Working with the UK’s international partners, they help inform UK policy on a range of security topics. They employ a large team of language analysts covering a wide range of languages to help them.

We will take an area of GCHQ’s work as a theme for the day and the students will be set a number of tasks using their languages to uncover details about an international crime.

Outline of the day

  • A series of tasks and activities relating to GCHQ’s work and integrating students’ language knowledge into their teamwork

  • A keynote talk from a GCHQ linguist

  • A language taster in a language significant for GCHQ (choice of 3 languages not normally taught in schools)

  • A presentation by the students using the language they are learning

  • An opportunity to talk to international business people
