A roadmap for schools to support the language(s) of schoolingWe know that language lies at the heart of all learning; we know that highly developed competences in the language of schooling are key to learner achievement. But do we understand the importance of adopting a whole-school approach for identifying and addressing learners’ linguistic needs?If you would like to find out about the benefits of a whole-school approach when it comes to the language of schooling, as well as tips on how to engage all stakeholders in your school community, then this webinar is for you.Please note that the ECML organises workshops in Member States on using the Roadmap as part of its Training and consultancy offer. For requests for 2022 please contact your national representative.Roadmap is a web-based, user-friendly resource for creating a strategic whole-school development plan which fosters inclusion by raising awareness of all languages present in the school community. Moreover, it provides concrete guidance on how to advance learners’ competences in the language(s) of schooling.It offers an interactive self-assessment tool, practical materials and a large database of promising practices, all of which can be adapted to specific national contexts. One such adaptation has already taken place in Ireland- why and how this was done will be presented at the webinar.The webinar is intended for all those working in language education and on language-related themes within school development – teachers, teacher educators, school leaders and administrators.Please register hereThe webinar will be in English.
