Workshops for Teachers

To achieve the Ministry of Education’s vision for young people to have key language capability, skills and competencies, our unique solution offers a broad range of services, resources and support for both teachers and schools to meet their diverse needs and varying stages of development.

As part of our resources, we run regular workshops for teachers of languages. 

This includes our EXPLORE series of one-off seminars, events and resources that can be accessed by teachers, schools, families and communities to engage, promote and explore language learning.
