To take into account

· Who is it intended for?

a Secondary Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) teacher who wishes to gain a recognised additional teaching qualification in Spanish? a Primary, Further or Adult Education teacher who would like to improve their Spanish for teaching purposes? an advanced student of Spanish (Higher+) who wishes to gain a University Diploma in Spanish for work purposes or for personal interest?
