ABOUT THIS COURSE

Classics teachers are perennially aware of the competing drives of an extremely challenging GCSE course, and the necessity to recruit as broadly as possible. Creating an excitement and buzz around Latin for students who don’t see themselves as the academic elite is the focus of this course.

Speaking from the perspective of a school that has managed to get more than half of the mixed-ability year group to opt in to Latin, this course will present strategies, resources and techniques to latch onto students’ enthusiasm, build their confidence without sacrificing academic rigour or ambition. Getting the mix of fun, excitement, cultural exploration and the linguistic foundations necessary for GCSE Latin is a real challenge – but when it’s right, it makes a huge difference to recruitment and student outcomes across the board.   

BENEFITS OF ATTENDING

  • Take away practical templates to raise attainment of weaker GCSE students
  • Increase recruitment and retention from KS3 to GCSE, and GCSE to sixth-form
  • Get practical strategies, ideas and inspiration to change the narrative around Latin from an elite subject for the few, to a fun subject.
