Towards an Integrated Curriculum

CLIL National Statement and Guidelines

CLIL - Content and Language Integrated Learning - is of growing interest throughout Europe. The CLIL National Statement and Guidelines are in no sense statutory but rather they constitute an authoritative source of support and guidance for teachers and schools who are interested in what is possible, whether they are starting down the road towards greater integration of content and language or have considerable experience already. There is no single model proposed here, but a range of possible directions and outcomes which will depend on the circumstances, objectives and aspirations of individual schools.


Languages in Europe - Towards 2020

Analysis and Proposals from the LETPP Consultation and Review

This document is the result of a one year project funded through the Life Long Learning programme of the European Union - ‘Languages in Europe, Theory, Policy and Practice (LETPP)'.

It is intended to provide a framework for further consideration and where necessary change in a fundamentally important area of future policy and practice, addressing such key questions as Rethinking ‘Mother tongue plus 2' , The role of the Lingua Franca , What is Multilingual education? Languages ‘beyond school' Multilingualism and the Worldwide Web , Multilingual Cities


Curriculum Models for Primary Languages

The curriculum models for primary languages web pages have been designed for school leaders, curriculum co-ordinators and LA advisers, seeking to ensure primary languages are included as part of a coherent KS2 curriculum.

The site explores ways of introducing languages and examines alternative ways of organising languages in the curriculum. Discover a large case study section, illustrating advantages of successful models, examples of how to develop intercultural understanding & community cohesion and ensure high quality teaching, learning & sustainability.

The Curriculum Models for Primary Languages pages were last updated in 2011 and some information may now be out of date. The pages are under review with more information available shortly.
