The call for applications is now open for the NCELP Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Courses.

Our CPD courses will take an in-depth look at Modern Foreign Language (MFL) curriculum design and pedagogy, and will run across three terms in the 2022 calendar year. 

The course is free to attend and will consist of five 2.5 hour remote learning sessions over one term complemented by online peer and instructor support.

We welcome applications from qualified teachers who are working at an eligible school in England that teaches French and/or German and/or Spanish. Private and independent schools are not eligible.

We recommend the course for Heads of Modern Foreign Language Departments, Department or Trust Subject Leads or others in a leadership or decision making position who are able to cascade course content to MFL colleagues.

Due to limited capacity, we can accept only one applicant per school. The call for applications will stay open until all places are filled. 

An online self-study version of all modules will be available in 2022 and open to all.

Applicants should download and read the pre-application guidance notes, terms and conditions for the course and the privacy notice before completing the online application form, links below.
