Secondary Spanish Up-skilling Level 1

Our Up-skilling course is for secondary language teachers who wish to acquire a third or fourth language to teach to Key Stage 3 students. The course takes into account the fact that delegates already have advanced language-learning skills, understand grammatical structures and wish to fast-track their learning. This course is for language teachers with no previous knowledge of Spanish.

This course focuses on:

  • confidence in oral fluency
  • phonetics, pronunciation and intonation
  • speaking and listening skills
  • reading and writing skills
  • grammatical structures and tenses
  • acquiring vocabulary and structures aligned to the Key Stage 3 curriculum

We also offer a level 2 course as a follow up to the above or for those teachers who already have a basic knowledge of Spanish and wish to teach Key Stage 4 students.

This course will be online:-

  • speaker teaching via webcam, accompanied by slides
  • small group with lots of opportunity for delegate speaking, questions and comments
  • all resources and a copy of the slides will be made available to delegates afterwards.

The course will be split over the following six days, running 4pm to 6:30pm each day.

  • Tuesday 24 November
  • Thursday 26 November
  • Tuesday 1 December
  • Tuesday 8 December
  • Tuesday 15 December
  • Thursday 17 December

The final week is flexible in terms of dates and can be extended into January if needed.
