Language Teacher of the Year Awards

The aim of the Primary and Secondary Language Teacher Awards is to support and promote language teaching and to raise the profile of language teaching as a career, recognising exciting, motivating practice among language teachers, celebrating imaginative teaching which inspires language learning in pupils.

Fellowship of the Association of Language Learning

The award of Fellow, is conferred on long standing members of the Association who have been nominated by their peers, in recognition of their commitment to ALL’s objectives and the support of other languages teachers.

ALL aims to recognise the ongoing contributions of its members and wishes to recognise those who deserve special mention and recognition.

ALL confers the award of Fellow, on those who are long standing members of the Association who have been nominated by their peers, in recognition of their commitment to ALL’s objectives and the support of other languages teachers.

ALL also works in partnership with our sponsors, to run an award scheme that recognises the creativity, dynamism, enthusiasm and skill of inspiring Languages teachers, who add value to their own schools and their local language teaching community.
