Languages Strategic Implementation Group: implementation plan third year report

Third year report on the group's plan to lead the practical implementation of the 1+2 language learning policy in Scotland's schools.


This document is the third annual report of the Languages Strategic Implementation Group, the national group working to support the development of language learning in Scotland’s schools. This report sets out the key achievements and activities carried out by group members in 2019.

Language is central to our cultural heritage and national identity, and essential for supporting a diverse and inclusive society, promoting Scotland’s reputation as an open and welcoming country. We recognise the importance of Scotland's rich diversity of languages, and the cultural, economic, historic and social benefits they bring. In schools we are encouraging young people to learn two additional languages to equip them with the skills needed to widen and their achievements and opportunities, and to participate fully in the 21st century globalised world.
