Support for ALLiS-funded schools
The Ministry of Education has issued a variation to ILEP's contract, effective from the 1st of February that has removed the support that the ILEP ALLiS team can offer to schools who receive ALLiS funding. Unfortunately this means that the ILEP ALLiS team are no longer able to offer specific support to ALLiS clusters such as workshops, advice and guidance for resourcing, planning and language programmes and the other ongoing support that has been available since 2015. There remains a range of support available for teachers of languages such as those below.
ILEP will still be offering workshops, immersion programmes and other support through National Language Advisers and the Korean Language Mentor and the two inquiry based pedagogy programmes however, at this stage this support will only be available through the ILEP contract until June 30, 2018.
TPLT, Transforming Practice in Language Teaching is an excellent option for curriculum support available for you to sign up for this year. Applications are being received until the end of January so it is not too late to get involved. For further details email email@example.com. TPLT also has a contract with the Ministry of Education until June 30, 2018.
Round 2 ALLiS schools who receive funding from the Ministry of Education can continue to contact Dr Sally Scott, Lead Adviser at the Ministry of Education in relation to funding agreements and to have further information about finding appropriate curriculum support for language, culture and pedagogy now that ILEP is no longer contracted to do so for ALLiS clusters.
