Let’s connect our teenagers to the world!

We believe passionately that we all play an important role in preparing the next generation for the future.

As future global citizens students will be starting their careers in a world that is a village and the job market that is global something as teachers you will be well aware. You will also be aware that unfortunately, our young people fall behind many other nations when it come to foreign language skills. Less students are choosing to study languages and for those that do the ability to learn the subject remotely can seem like a challenge.

In recognition of this, we have partnered with World is a Village, an online educational programme aimed at fostering conversation between teenagers in different countries and boosting their confidence in foreign languages. They help schools build new connections between students in the UK and in Europe. We believe developing these connections enables students to gain essential communication skills and self-confidence that will help successfully transition from education into employment.

Together we have launched a manifesto outlining our goal of inspiring young people about the importance of languages in the world of work and encourage them to study languages further.

“The ability to speak multiple languages has opened many doors and opportunities in my professional career. The awareness of different cultures and the impact on behaviours has helped me become a strong leader. The partnership with World is a Village (WIV) expands our ability to support young people to acquire cultural awareness and communication skills beyond what the standard curriculum provides them today. It is an opportunity that excites me personally and as the Managing Director of F4S. Our ambition is to equip students with the skills of tomorrow, to improve their employability and their confidence to achieve. This partnership is yet another great opportunity to help us reach our goal.”
