A Career in languages

13 Jun 2024
Written by Darren Donaldson

Are languages used in your place of work? If so, please read on… 


The Modern Languages department are looking to source potential partners for their biannual ‘Languages in Employability’ partnership programme. The programme, which will run over the course of the 2024-2025 academic session, aims to give pupils a “real life context” for how they may be able to utilise their language skills in their future career.  


In terms of what is involved, we would like to compile a series of pre-recorded videos from each professional involved in the project, to talk about how languages are used in your job and how you got into your field of work. In addition, we would like to liaise with each professional to create an authentic task for pupils to complete, similar in style to the day-to-day tasks you would undertake. This task is carried out by pupils in their classes over several lessons and is overseen by class teachers. Finally, once the tasks are complete, we would like to invite you to judge the tasks. Please note, the judging can be done over email.  


If languages are used in your place of work, and you may be interested in collaborating with us, please send an email to and we can facilatate.
