The Legacy project, supported by the Mayor of London and funded by the Greater London Authority, aims at focusing on raising the quality of teaching in primary and secondary schools and improving pupils’ attainment in core subjects including languages.
Among these funded learning projects, the University of Westminster’s ‘Professional Language Networks Hubs’ Legacy Project has aimed to enhance language teachers’ subject knowledge and leadership skills in primary and secondary schools across London, by using evidence-based approaches to develop their practice further.
The University of Westminster’s team of experts have overseen the development of the local hubs in London, ensuring that lead practitioners receive 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 hub, built upon the work accomplished by the University of Westminster’s original LSEF project, has directly supported 16 schools, 20 teachers and 6085 pupils since its creation. 32 networking events have reached over 460 teachers across London.
