Pupils in 7JICT1 begin the German ICT bilingual project at the beginning of their Spring term. The pupils follow the normal ICT curriculum but much of the lesson delivery and many of the resources and software are in German.
The aim of the project is to enhance the pupils’ capacity to acquire learning and knowledge in both languages and new technology in a fun, yet challenging way. Furthermore, it will provide learners with a useful introduction to the future employment market, where strong computing skills and the ability to speak a major European language will be major advantages.
The course runs for three years when pupils will hopefully choose to continue separate courses in German and Computing.
