A group of London modern foreign language primary teachers involved in the University of Westminster’s London Schools Excellence Legacy Project, ‘Professional Language Networks,’ were recognised for their hard work and contributions, at a Celebration Event at City Hall, which took place on Monday 11 December 2017. The teachers received a Certificate of Recognition for their contributions to the Subject Knowledge Hub Programme and Deputy Mayor of London, Joanne McCartney, thanked them and all individuals involved in the programme for supporting excellent teaching and learning in London Schools.
The Mayor of London established a legacy fund to support 17 Subject Knowledge Hubs, running between January 2016 and August 2017, to build on the success of the London Schools Excellence Fund Programme (LSEF), which was set up to improve the quality of teaching in the capital between September 2013 and December 2015. The Subject Knowledge Hub Programme gave teachers from a range of schools the opportunity to work together with subject and business experts, with a strong focus on the continual development of teachers’ subject knowledge and pedagogy. In the case of the University of Westminster’s project, ‘Professional Language Networks’, it enabled teachers to develop their leadership skills and reflective practice, providing them with the confidence and expertise to support each other and other teachers and schools in their communities.
