Bursaries for attendance at the Sir Robert Taylor Society Conference 2016
20 Jan 2016: The Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages has been successful in obtaining HEFCE funding under the National Network for Collaborative Outreach scheme. This is funding a joint project with the MML outreach and schools liaison team at the University of Cambridge.
The NNCO grant will provide funding of £5000 towards this outreach project, and match-funding has been provided by the Ferreras Willetts Family. The project will provide bursaries for MFL teachers from the maintained sector to attend conferences organised by the MML societies of the two universities, the Robert Taylor Society at Oxford and the Oliver Prior Society at Cambridge. The annual conferences are designed to provide an insight into the work of the Modern Languages Faculty, and provide an opportunity for school teachers and university colleagues to exchange ideas and discuss developments in the subject.
Teachers interested in applying for a bursary should contact one of the societies via their website.
