Driving Innovation through Key Language Leaders in Western Australia
Ménager, Simone
Babel, v50 n2-3 p60-65 2015
In this increasingly interconnected world, the ability to communicate clearly and effectively with each other defines success in relationships, in the workforce and in one's personal pursuits. (AFMLTA More Leaps, 2012). There is an impetus in education, therefore, to improve the quality of language teaching and learning programs in schools and to increase the numbers of students studying languages. The Key Language Leaders initiative (KLL) was developed by the Western Australian (WA) Department of Education's Statewide Services division to strengthen the learning of languages in WA public schools. The purpose of the KLL initiative is to strengthen teaching in primary and secondary schools by building the capacity of key language leaders to support their colleagues. Language specific officers worked closely with project participants to develop their plans and oversee their development.
