These FREE full-day events are designed to support teachers and heads of department who are delivering our new MFL GCSE (9-1) qualifications* over three years, with teaching beginning in Autumn 2015.

The course will give you:

  • guidance on implementing the GCSE changes into a three-year Key Stage 4.
  • a valuable overview of the new Edexcel qualifications* and what they offer you and your students
  • a chance to explore the specifications*, question papers* and mark schemes*
  • a look at teaching and learning strategies for integrating translation and literary texts and encouraging spontaneous speaking in the classroom
  • five CPD hours
  • an opportunity to exchange ideas with other teachers, find out more about the support we offer and speak to a member of our languages team.

Further Getting Ready To Teach events for centres delivering a two-year KS4 will be provided in Spring/Summer 2016 and will be available for booking in due course.
