This is our annual primary language event of the year. Delegates can listen to key speakers, be updated on the latest issues surrounding languages teaching in primary schools and, as always, have some time to network and share ideas.

    By attending the conference, participants will:

    • gain an update on the national, regional and local picture for primary languages
    • be able to share innovative ideas and good practice
    • be able to network with colleagues.
