The French Department applied, and were selected, to be part of a pioneering Welsh Government initiative as part of the Global Futures strategy to promote modern languages across Wales.  Caerleon Comprehensive School was chosen as one of eight schools and four FE colleges to take part in this pan-Wales project across the four regional consortia.  AS French students will benefit from a 10-week programme of intensive support (turbo-tutoring) delivered by experienced modern languages teachers, who have undertaken the turbo-tutoring programme, trained by WJEC examiners.  This intervention will support schools and learners at a time of change with new curriculum specifications being introduced in schools in Wales and the Caerleon French department is delighted to have been selected as part of the scheme.
