Strengthening Asia-Pacific Language Teaching – Latin America (formerly STEP)
Course Duration
6 month programme
Date/Time

Latin America Terms 1 & 2 or 3 & 4

2 clusters per term. Clusters are based on applicants' level of Spanish language.

Overview

This new programme is for teachers at primary/intermediate and lower secondary school level who wish to develop or enhance a Spanish language programme and who can connect with native speakers in their community.  It is not necessary to be a speaker of Spanish but we do expect a commitment from teachers to learn the language. Our pedagogical and language learning support is offered to both the teacher and the native speaker, to learn alongside each other. 

The 2022 programme will allow registered teachers and native speakers to work together to enhance the learning outcomes for students who are new to Spanish language learning. With support from the Latin American Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence, the programme will allow professional learning in a supported environment.  

  • Workshops with facilitators from Tui Tuia - Learning Circle
  • In-school support visits 
  • Online workshops to offer continued support throughout the programme

Please note we are asking schools to make connections with native speakers to be a part of this programme but the Latin American CAPE will endeavour to support schools that may have difficulty connecting with the community. We will then offer pedagogical support and training to both registered teachers and their native speaker community members. Please also allow some time for your required school processes for non-teachers working alongside teachers within your school to be completed. Schools are expected to be supportive of a Spanish language programme being started or continued during 2022. 

We offer the programme twice during the year, with two clusters in each semester. The clusters will be determined based on Spanish language levels and geographical location of teachers and schools. During the second half of 2022, we will offer a second programme for teachers who have already completed Programme 1 but wish to continue. Registration is open for BOTH teachers AND their native speaker partners now.  The closing date for applications is Monday 6 December 2022.

Who Should Attend

This programme is open to all HOD's and primary/intermediate and lower secondary school level Spanish teachers or teachers who wish to learn and teach Spanish.
