Professional Language Networks Hub Project, University of Westminster
The Professional Language Networks Hub Legacy Project built on the work accomplished by the University of Westminster’s LSEF project, ‘Professional Language Networks’, aiming to enhance language teachers’ subject knowledge and leadership skills, by using evidence-based approaches to develop their practice further.
The University of Westminster’s team of mentors have overseen the development of 7 local hubs in London, ensuring that lead practitioners received the necessary training that will equip them with the skills, academic knowledge and confidence to use evidence-based approaches to further develop their practice and to be able to support their colleagues. The project included a complementary programme of CPD, networking and sharing of best practice at termly meetings as well as the opportunity for peer teaching and observations to take place. Lead Practitioners also had the opportunity to plan and deliver sessions at the bi-annual Network for Languages London conferences, with the support of their mentors and other national and international conferences. Lead practitioners became equipped and empowered to sustain the running of the hubs at the end of the legacy-funding period, with the professional skills and confidence to support colleagues, for example, by delivering their own training sessions and giving feedback to colleagues following observations. The teachers and over 6000 pupils they teach have been impacted by the project.
