Why should I attend?

This course explains in detail what CLIL is, how it works and why it works so well in the primary phase. Delegates will be provided with lots of practical examples and will have the opportunity to create their own CLIL module using simple planning tools. A highly stimulating and rewarding course!

What will the course enable me to do? 

There are three modules to this course.

  • The three cords
  • Towards an integrated curriculum
  • Planning for the future

Module one enables delegates to look at how we can make more challenging cross-curricular links and demonstrates this using an example of a History/French project. It will introduce the three cords – content, language and intercultural understanding. In Module two delegates will look at the National Guidelines for CLIL, examine key characteristics of CLIL and take an in-depth look at a case study involving a languages specialist, a non-specialist teacher, students and teaching assistants at a primary school where students enjoy learning CLIL style. In module three delegates will consider how CLIL might fit into the context of their own schools. Delegates will be introduced to a system of planning and will be provided with the opportunity to plan a unit of work themselves.

The course will help you to: 

  • Understand the term CLIL, what CLIL is and how it works
  • Consider the advantages of CLIL in the primary phase
  • Consider the key characteristics of CLIL
  • Learn from practical examples
  • Understand how to plan a CLIL lesson
  • Look at how CLIL might fit into the context of your own school
  • Start to plan for implementation of CLIL in your own school
