GROW

GROW is a year-long programme made up of a series of sessions designed to support teachers to develop measurable capability in the effective teaching of languages, and foster strong inter-school support networks.

In addition to the 6 face-to-face or online sessions, Future Learning Solutions' Professional Experts will provide in-school support to teachers, through in-class observation and post observation discussion. 

Programme clusters will be in different cities around the country and Future Learning Solutions will pay for associated travel for teachers who are outside of the city of delivery for the two face-to-face sessions.

Throughout the programme there will be opportunities to give feedback and evaluate the sessions.
