NCELP is pleased to share with you outlines of our Key Stage 4 Schemes of Work with different aspects of language knowledge and practice planned for Year 10 and 11 across French, German and Spanish.
The NCELP Schemes of Work are proposed as examples of how language knowledge and practice can be sequenced and re-visited systematically to support progression in the early stages of language development within a low exposure foreign language setting.
All of the documents below are freely available on the NCELP Resource Portal.
The principles and processes that informed the SOW are described in this Rationale, Scope, and Key Principles document. Further insights are available in the Scheme of Work Development presentation.
The NCELP SOW are in line with: (a) the Review of MFL Pedagogy, a report published by the Teaching Schools Council, which drew on research into foreign language learning and teaching and on the knowledge and experience of a wide range of experienced practitioners; (b) Ofsted’s current aspirations for curriculum intent, implementation, and impact; and c) preparing a solid foundation for the new GCSE content and examinations (first teaching September 2024), which builds on the core grammar and vocabulary outlined in the programmes of study for Key Stages 2 and 3.
