The QFI Arabic language and culture program, which supports the teaching and learning of Arabic in British schools, is now in its eighth year. Working in collaboration with the British Council in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and with Scotland’s National Centre for Languages (SCILT) in Scotland, the program supports 41 Schools across UK: (England 18, NI 6, Wales 3, Scotland 14) 29 secondary schools and 12 primary. Over 3600 pupils are learning Arabic as a result.
Since the program began much has been learned about Arabic education in British schools: who is learning it and why; who is teaching it and how; what materials and resources exist; and what training and professional development opportunities are available for Arabic teachers.
