Research and statistics

At CILT, the National Centre for Languages, we are committed to supporting research. In particular, we aim to:

  • support evidence-based development of policy and practice in the world of languages
  • bring researchers, practitioners and policy makers into closer contact with each other
  • encourage teachers to be involved in action research projects in their own classrooms.

Secondary Language Trends Survey 2011

Did you receive a letter and/or an email to invite you to participate in the Language Trends survey 2011?

At this crucial stage for the development of language teaching, we are asking for your support to gather information on the national picture in secondary schools. We aim to capture accurate, up to date information about the concerns of teachers and the issues for them in relation to the Schools White Paper, the Importance of Teaching.
