Become an expert in CLIL!

//14/09/12
Bilingual education is gaining increasing presence in both public and private schools throughout Spain. This follows guidelines established by the European Union aiming to improve foreign language learning, at a time when there is increasing societal demand for bilingual schools and centres. The successful implementation of bilingual education relies on the teachers, who must strive to receive the necessary linguistic and methodological training in order to provide quality education in the bilingual setting.

The CLIL approach (Content and Language Integrated Learning) is considered as a model of good practice in bilingual education. It has therefore been adopted by a large number of Infant and Primary schools in Spain, such as schools in the AICOLE Bilingual Project in Madrid.

The Expert in Content and Language Integrated Learning Postgraduate Course offers students all the necessary training and skills to become effective and competent teachers in bilingual schools. Click here for more information
