As part of a global economy and increasingly multilingual and multicultural society, it is essential that we equip the next generation of students with the vital skills which will allow them to succeed. Language and technology skills are an integral part of this.
Why not apply to enter the 1 + 2 Factor at the same time? Both events are looking for exciting projects that encourage larger numbers of students to learn languages to a higher level.
Scottish schools who develop innovative language projects that also use digital technologies will be meeting the criteria for both events so while planning your project for the Schools Language Awards click here to sign up for the 1 + 2 Factor aswell.
The deadline for entering both events is the 30th June 2015 with the Final event for the 1 + 2 Factor on 30th September and National event for the Schools Language Awards being held in November.
The British Academy is inviting applications from schools, colleges and other education providers, including supplementary schools, that encourage excellence in language learning. A total of 14 awards of £4,000 will be made to winners around the UK, plus an extra £2,000 for two national winners.
