S6 Language Ambassadors Programme 

This is a great opportunity for S6 pupils who are studying French or Spanish, want to keep up their higher language from last year or are interested in studying Primary or Secondary teaching at University.

You’ll assist the teacher 1 period a week in S1-S3 classes by helping learners with pronunciation, point keeping in games, working with small groups etc. Training will be provided and you’ll never be alone in a class!

It’s an opportunity to give back to the school by supporting younger Language learners while developing communication and leadership skills, gaining a SALTIRE award and experience which will look great on your UCAS application!

If this is of interest to you, please attend a short meeting at break on Monday 26th in Room 125 (Miss Lochhead’s room) to find out more info and to collect an application form.
