We would like to invite schools to take part in the Routes Into Languages Roadshow Programme.

This programme, designed for Year 9 pupils, aims to promote language learning and motivate students to take up a language at option-time for their GCSE. A typical roadshow lasts 2 hours and consists of the following activities: two taster languages (Italian and Greek), an interactive session with student ambassadors designed to raise language awareness and talk about careers and finally an interactive activity based on cultural awareness.

Four roadshows are available this year, from October to March, for schools located within half an hour of Newcastle. Hopefully more will be added during the course of the year. They take place on a Thursday afternoon. The start and end time can be adapted to individual schools. Ideally, one school will be asked to host an event to which two other schools will be invited to attend. The maximum number of pupils per roadshow is 120.

If you are interested in hosting a roadshow please register your interest for this event using the register button below.  If you already have a date in mind please let us know. Otherwise, don’t worry we will then contact you to arrange the exact date.

For more information please email Ariane.
