CILT, the National Centre for Languages works to promote the
importance of all languages spoken within the UK alongside the more
common, often western European languages, taught in our education
system and taken advantage of by employers. CILT recognises the
contribution and potential of these ‘community’ languages, both to
society as a whole and to individual speakers and learners.
As well as dedicated cross-phase activities such as the Bulletin
and National Show to support the education field, CILT has
developed community languages and intercultural skills strands of
work across a wide range of our activities, including promoting
languages, engaging with employers, acting as a sector body and
supporting teachers in specific education sectors.
has worked with key partners to develop the Our languages
website and resources to highlight the benefits of
mainstream and complementary schools working together.
