Routes into Languages

Routes into Languages is funded by the Higher Education Funding Councils for England and Wales, and will run until July 2016.

The focus of Routes into Languages is to:

  • bring new ideas and partners together to promote increased take-up in learning languages in secondary and higher education
  • promote the take-up of work and study abroad in language degrees and in other subjects
  • promote greater national capacity in areas of employment that require proficiency in languages and intercultural competence
  • raise the aspirations and attainment of students in secondary and higher education
  • promote greater collaboration between universities, schools and stakeholders.

Routes into Languages has produced a number of useful resources to support the promotion of languages, which are freely available from their website.

They also run events, competitions and activities around the country for language students.
