"Why Study Languages?" Presentations for Parents

Monday, 27 October, 2014 - 09:00 to Friday, 24 April, 2015 - 20:00
Event Type: 
North East
Your school


Here at Routes into Languages North East we recognise that it isn't just pupils who may need convincing about the many benefits of continued language study! We're on hand to support your school by delivering bespoke 'Why Study Languages?' presentations to parents, governors and school staff at Parents' Evenings, GCSE Options and Sixth Form Options Evenings throughout the school year.

What are the options?

- Parents’ Evening presentation for pupils and parents

- GCSE Option Evening presentation for pupils and parents

- Presentation to School SMT & Governors

We like to keep our presentations interactive, so for smaller groups we adopt a workshop-style with small group work and structured Q&A sessions. We are happy to fit into your department's strategy for motivating pupils and will do our best to fit your agenda.


Have we seen this presentation before?

We try to revamp our presentations every year, but yes, you may have heard some similar arguments before. However, our students are always enthused and convey their passion for languages with every word... and their personal experiences and reasons for learning languages are always very varied.


Does this cost a lot?

Due to our reduced funding we are now charging the small fee of £50 for a school visit. This covers the cost of two student ambassadors coming to your school for up to half a day. Should you require more than this then we will happily negotiate a price with you. We are sure you'll agree that this is excellent value for money.


These visits are bespoke but could include:-

- Why Study Languages

- Employability and Careers with Languages tips

- University jargon buster

- University language routes

- Year Abroad testimonials

Booking information: 

Please complete the registration form, including the name of your school, details of the proposed target audience, potential dates for the visit and any other relevant information where possible. A member of the Routes into Languages Senior Ambassador Team will be in touch as soon as possible to organise your visit.
