Speakers at the Language Information Point 2013

I hope to meet you all soon at the Language Information Point where you can ask questions of head teachers, teachers, LA advisers and other professionals who are helping to support and deliver language support and learning into your schools curriculum in readiness for the 2014 changes.

Just Have a Question?
Then come and ask us; we will talk through the problem or concern with you and suggest a possible solution.

Need a Language Resource?
For those of you who would like to ask a supplier a direct question, some of the sponsors of the Primary Language Awards will be available to answer your questions. They will also show how their resource can support language learning, whilst giving up to date and practical examples of classroom use.
