Professor Janice Carruthers contributes to ‘Towards a National Languages Strategy'
Professor Janice Carruthers, Professor of French Linguistics at the School of Arts, English and Languages was one of the researchers to make a major contribution to ‘Towards a National Languages Strategy: Education and Skills’ published on 8 July.
The Strategy is aimed at boosting language learning across the UK’s four jurisdictions, which has fallen in recent years. Professor Carruthers said: “Language skills are crucial for economic growth, for building global partnerships and for our cultural life at home. Education is pivotal in achieving the changes that are urgently needed. Grounded in a strong research base, 'Towards a National Languages Strategy: Education and Skills' offers a set of strategic yet realistic proposals that are tailored to the different educational contexts across the UK.
