Regional Language Network (RLN) London has launched a toolkit to share motivating activities and ideas with businesses and schools interested in working in partnership to encourage language learning.
The toolkit includes samples of activities carried out by recognised Business Language Champions, together with supporting materials and advice which can help in building long-term partnerships between schools and businesses.
The toolkit is the latest addition to the Business Languages Champions programme, which highlights the value of language skills in the workplace for young people. The programme recently earned praise from Foreign Secretary David Miliband, who invited a group of pupils and teachers from Hornsey School for Girls in North London to meet with him to share their experience of working with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).
Business Language Champions organiser, Pinky Sidhu, said ‘With our toolkit and future activities we expect to inspire and motivate more and more partners to get involved and make a difference.
