Applications for the British Academy Schools Language Awards 2013 have opened.
The British Academy is again offering a series of Awards throughout the UK for the encouragement of excellence in language learning. This year the focus is on activity that encourages larger numbers of students to take languages to advanced and degree level. Applicants must demonstrate innovative and attainable plans for improving take up and enthusiasm for language learning beyond the age of 16 (S5/S6 in Scotland). Projects which involve collaboration between sectors (e.g. between schools/colleges/universities, or with business or employers), or which target learners from less advantaged social groups or areas of the country, are particularly welcomed.
A total of 15 Awards of £4,000 each will be distributed to successful applicants throughout the UK and one UK national winner will receive £8,000
Applications are now open, the deadline is 31 May 2013.
