SlfMandarin for Life and Work Seminar

24-25 September 2014 (SCILT/CISS)

Come along and hear how to develop learners' employability skills through learning and teaching of Mandarin! The workshop will demonstrate the practice that is taking place in Broughton High School, Edinburgh. In particular, we will share how this modern language department has developed learners' employability skills and gained accreditation for them through the SQA Language for Life and Work Award.

You will also hear about what Confucius Institute for Scotland's Schools can do for you and discuss ideas for linking businesses and schools to create a meaningful context for learning that develops young people's language skills and their understanding of the world of work.
