Languages and your future

Want to know more about how langages can help your career prospects?

Routes into Languages has produced Languages and your future, a resource aimed at secondary school pupils to encourage them to learn languages by telling them about the employability benefits of knowing a foreign language. It combines languages, skills and professions to show pupils how they are all linked and to encourage them to think about the skills you gain by learning a language.

The printed resource consists of the following: an A2 poster about employability; 10 profiles of people who use languages in their careers; a 3D object decorated with languages skills to assemble in class; a set of cards in French, German and Spanish and an information booklet.
