MLC has ended

David Sheppard

I am assistant head of the languages faculty at Tanglin Trust School, Singapore, in charge of the mother-tongue programme. I have successfully launched and grown this from its very beginnings to a full launch in the 2014/15 school year. I currently manage 12 mother-tongue tutors who are teaching more than 75 children in KS3/4/5 in French/Spanish/Mandarin/German in curriculum time and Dutch/Danish/Hindi/Greek outside of curriculum time. Through this, I have had to deal with many different stakeholders across the school community and have worked hard with colleagues to put lasting systems in place. I am looking to launch phase 2 of the programme in the coming school year.
