Code: WCTSA/22/0016 Secondary MFL Masterclass Series

SWIFT recognises the value of subject specific training and is offering subject masterclasses for secondary teachers, with key notes and delivery by experts in their field. The course is 6 sessions long and runs as twilight sessions after school. All of the sessions are being facilitated by Rachel Hawkes, co-director of the NCELP and Director of international Education and Research and SLE for languages at the CAM Academy Trust. Rachel is a former president of ALL, and is author of several languages text books. Each session shows the role and practice of a knowledge-rich curriculum

Session 1: Wednesday 28 September 3.30 - 5.00pm - The new GCSE and implications for teaching at KS2/3
Session 2: Tuesday 11 October 3.30 - 5.00pm - Phonics
Session 3: Thursday 10 November 3.30 - 5.00pm - Vocabulary
Session4: Wednesday 7 December 3.30 - 5.00pm - Explicit knowledge
Session 5: Wednesday 18 January 3.30 - 5.00pm - Use of the target language
Session 6: Tuesday 21 February 3.30 - 5.00pm - Quick wins for Year 11

Whilst there will be an element of reflection and teachers will benefit from attending the programme as a whole, each session will also be stand alone, allowing teachers to dip into the programme at various points. Each session will be recorded and therefore teachers who are unable to attend will still have access to the materials which can be shared back in school. If a school pays for the whole programme, any teacher from the school can attend the sessions and it does not have to be the same member of staff each time. This will allow schools to prioritise areas of development for different staff and/or tie in with appraisal targets.
