Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

Participants will understand what it takes to deliver outstanding performance at GCSE in MFL. This course will give a range of strategies that can be used at GCSE level and will look at effective organisation as well as how to work with the active skills of sepaking and writing. There will be a focus on acheivement at all levels and how academic and grammatical rigour can be a feature of GCSE teaching in this controlled assesment age.

Evidence underpinning this approach

The activities that will be discussed as part of this course come from the presenter's teaching experience and the presenter has achieved consistently excellent results in their teaching career. Some of the ideas will be based on popular books on teaching strategies and techniques, although always adapted to suit the subject and purpose.

How users/participants can evaluate success

There will be the opportunity for participants to fill in a feedback form so that their comments can be included to aid with further development of the material aimed at this level. Participants would be encouraged to include attendance at this course in their CPD journal and write down the techniques used and how they were used in the classroom and what adaptations need to be made for them to be successful for that individual.

Follow-up activities and support

There will be the opportunity to opt in to the range of courses offered by Blossom Training. Following up from this course, there would be suggestion of seeking out others in their area and school to discuss the merits of the training and how it can be used to enrich their teaching.
