Who should attend?

In response to the new national curriculum and the scrapping of levels many schools are considering alternative methods of recording progress. This course is for language teachers who wish to reflect on the best methods of planning and recording progress over the statutory key stage 3. It will allow delegates to consider a range of options and to discuss what their whole-school policy is for assessment.

Fiona Cotton is a former head of languages who now works as an independent consultant. She also worked for the National Strategies as a reviewer of the renewed Key Stage 3 framework for languages.  Fi has a particular interest in progression and assessment for learning across key stage 2 and 3 but has wide experience leading training for teachers in FKS, KS1 and of course, KS4 and post 16. She has been known to   use some rather innovative methods to teach languages: playing the ukulele, performing puppet shows and teaching salsa dancing - all in the target language, of course
