Promoting the take-up of languages and student mobility

Year 9 Apprentice Day

Wednesday, 24 February, 2016 - 00:00
Event Type: 
West Midlands
University of Warwick

Following the success of last year’s event, we would like to invite Year 9 students of French, German and Spanish to attend a day where they will be given the opportunity to use their language skills in a business context. They will be working with current students at the university as well as teachers in the academic departments to develop their linguistic ability and discover how their skills might be of value to them in later life. 

Student feedback from previous Apprentice Days

I learnt about the importance of languages in a career and that you are more likely to get a better job if you learn a language

I enjoyed the day as we worked with people outside of our school and it has made me want to learn more languages fluently

“…a fantastic opportunity for students to challenge themselves not only linguistically but also on a personal level.” (Teacher feedback)


Booking information: 

These events are designed to motivate and encourage your most able linguists and give them the opportunity to practise and extend their language skills.

We hope to see you at one or more of our events on campus this year. There is no charge for the events; however you will need to make your own way to and from campus.
