In an increasingly globalised economy, being able to communicate in more than one language is becoming ever more vital. According to the CBI’s Education and Skills Survey 2015, over 75% of businesses have a need for language skills among their employees.
UWS offers modern language training through the School of Education & Social Sciences; recognised as one of the most innovative & highly-ranked providers of Education in Scotland and the UK. The school offers career-long professional learning or CPD opportunities for qualified practitioners via a range of face-to-face, online or blended programmes.
Language courses are offered to students, staff and the general public; our ‘Languages for All’ programme offers trimester and year-long, weekly classes in a variety of languages (from beginner upwards). The School also offers language training for teachers (primary and secondary) to support their class activities, and bespoke programmes for organisations. For total language immersion, sessions are conducted in the target language as much as possible, and most are delivered by native speakers.
