Promoting the take-up of languages and student mobility

Routes NW Online MTOT Workshops


Routes NW is coordinating a series of free online workshops, available nationally, to accompany the Mother Tongue Other Tongue competition. Details of each session, together with registration links, can be found on the Routes North West page or in the attachment below.

Each workshop is themed around a specific element relating to poetry and languages, with four workshops involving breakout groups in different languages. This is the ideal opportunity to engage pupils in creative language production, whether they intend to enter MTOT or not. We hope to engage a wide range of teachers and pupils in these live events, but will record the opening plenary session and ensure materials from the breakout sessions are shared with registered teachers after the event. Participants may register individually or in groups, although we anticipate younger age group will join as groups. Further details on MTOT and how to enter can be found here:
