Cumbria CLIL is an international teacher training and EFL provider, based in North West England. We specialise in training teachers (primary and secondary) who teach their subjects through the medium of English and offer residential courses in Carlisle and the Lake District as well as in-house courses and workshops abroad.
The company was founded by Janet Streeter who has worked in education for over 30 years and who is a specialist in CLIL (Content & Language Integrated Learning). Janet has coordinated and participated in EU CLIL projects and has also designed and delivered CLIL courses for the past 15 years.
Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) is an exciting area of work with proven benefits for the linguistic and cognitive development of children and young people. However, as teachers we can be daunted by the potential challenges involved.
- Are my English skills good enough?
- What about subject-specific language?
- What is my strategy with regard to classroom language?
- Am I a subject teacher or am I a language teacher?
- Which skills do I need?
- Is it all going to take too much time?
Through its programme of UK-based residential courses and in-house workshops abroad, Cumbria CLIL aims to help teachers and CLIL coordinators answer these questions, work on their English and reflect on their practice.
