Free high challenge BAFTA and BETT nominated MFL resources exploring issues through film (mflthroughfilm.com)
In partnership with the Haberdashers’ Company LG&T set up and ran a five year programme called the Modern Foreign Languages Independent State School Partnership that developed high challenge KS3/4 and A Level film resources that are now freely available from this site. Eleven schools worked in close collaboration with London G&T for several years to support and assist teachers in developing innovative strategies to engage students’ enthusiasm for and to significantly increase A* at both GCSE and A level in Modern Languages. This was supported by a transformative training programme for teachers with a focus on issues of authentic material and voice and materials designed to increase confidence with idiom and a keen awareness of registers. In addition the development of high challenge content, rich tasks, intellectual curiosity and critical thinking were seen as a core element of the programme.
We have worked with more than 4000 schools, and supported teachers, local authorities and universities across the country and internationally. More than 160,000 educators worldwide have used our free award winning online resources.
