National languages policy to be discussed at workshop

Cambridge Language Sciences are to hold a workshop to discuss the future of UK languages policy.

Ministers, advisers and civil servants will come to Cambridge on Friday 30 October to discuss the present and future of languages policy in the UK.

Language policy in Britain covers the indigenous languages of the UK, such as English and Welsh, as well as community or heritage languages and foreign language learning.

The workshop, which will be held at Murray Edwards College on Friday from 9:30-1:30, will see experts and policy advisers present their ideas for mapping where the responsibility for language policy sits and how to promote dialogue between the different departments.

The workshop is chaired by Baroness Coussins, Co-Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Modern Languages.

Registration for the event is now closed, but more information can be found online at:
