ALL supports its members in sharing and developing professional experience through a range of national and international projects, and encourages active participation, so that members can pursue individual passions and bring their expertise and experience to bear.
Themes range from developments in approaches to language learning, the place of languages in the wider curriculum, the production of new resources to support teaching and learning and more!
Involvement in such projects is also enriching for the personal and professional development of ALL members.
ALL has undertaken numerous projects for the benefit of language teachers and their learners. Some of the projects we lead are grant-funded such as the high profile ALL Connect initiative which created training modules and wikis for teachers of KS2 and KS3 languages to get to grips with the new Programmes of Study (2014). This was funded through a two-year grant from the DfE.
ALL has also supported the FLAME initiative which has been a fantastic example of the power of interested members and volunteers coming together to develop and share approaches and resources to introduce and embed cross-curricular language learning (CLIL) within primary and secondary classrooms.
ALL also led the Language Futures initiative from 2015-18: the findings of a two-year research exercise into the impact of the Language Futures approach on learners' achievement and motivation was presented in a keynote at Language World 2018.
Projects in partnership with ALL
ALL regularly works in partnership with other organisations with similar aims, such as European-funded initiatives, projects with other subject associations, cultural institutes and universities.
These are usually made possible through grant funding. ALL regularly seeks opportunities to source funding to develop and extend existing projects or to build on these to take them in a new direction based on the identified needs of language learners and teachers.
