Recent world events have highlighted an area where, unfortunately, our young people fall behind many other nations - foreign language skills. As future global citizens, they will be starting their careers in a world that is a village and a job market that is global.
We are partnering with World is a Village, an EdTech startup that helps children across the world connect to discover new cultures, make new friends, and improve their language skills. Together we launched a manifesto to inspire young people about the importance of languages in the world of work and encouraging them to study languages further. Read our Languages Manifesto
Our mission is to bridge the gap between education and the world of work. Through this partnership and with your investment in your child's future, we aim to give pupils the opportunity to build an international network and develop knowledge of the world around them.
By connecting once a week with French students, your child will learn French, and gain essential communication skills and self-confidence that help successfully transition from education into employment.
