Location: The British Academy, London.

The Annual General Meeting of the Speak to the Future Campaign will be followed by the presentation and analysis of Language Trends 2013-2014.

Provisional Agenda

We will be holding our Annual General Meeting at the British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH on 30 April. This will be followed by a presentation of the main findings from the 12th in the series of research exercises into Language Trends, investigating the position of language learning in state maintained and independent secondary schools and in state primary schools. The research has been conducted under the joint management of CfBT Education Trust and the British Council with the support of the ALL (Association for Language Learning) and ISMLA (the Independent Schools Modern Language Association). S2F is particularly pleased to welcome Kathryn Board, one of the authors of the report, who will join Teresa Tinsley in presenting the data analysis. This presentation will lead into a plenary discussion and question and answer session, where the implications of the report can be fully explored.

In the afternoon, we will turn our attention to future strategic planning. We will be joined by Claire Shilling from the Language Show Live to discuss and agree the content for our Language Leaders’ Summit, aimed at head teachers, senior leaders and subject specialists facing the challenge of implementing policy reform for languages from September 2014. Prepare for a lively discussion as we set the agenda for the event on the 17th October taking place on the 3rd Floor at Olympia.

The meeting will take place from 10.00 until 15.30, Wednesday, 30th April 2014 at the British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH. Lunch will be provided.
