The main aim of this toolkit is to provide you with flexible and adaptable exemplars, and Continuing professional development activities. These are to improve the teaching and learning of Modern Foreign Languages, based on certain key themes and principles of good practice.

The common aim of all these activities is to:

  • Inspire, stimulate and challenge learners at all levels of competence in all taught languages.
  • Meet the needs of all learners, personalising learning and promoting Skills for Life.
  • Promote equality and diversity.

These activities will also enable you to:

  • reflect on your own practice
  • share ideas, resources and good practice
  • identify priorities for action; and
  • plan for development and improvement.

You can either use these exemplar activities in a Continuing professional development session or for individual study.
