A review of languages teaching, mental health training and a new writing competition for students are among the SecEd At a glance headlines for May 5, 2016.

An evidence review has launched in a bid to establish best practice for the effective teaching of languages at key stages 3 and 4. The Teaching Schools Council has unveiled the project, which is to be led by Ian Bauckham, the executive headteacher of the Bennett Memorial Diocesan School in Kent. It will focus on pedagogical approaches and seek to offer practical advice to schools. The Association of School and College Leaders has welcomed the review, but has also called on the government to tackle the teacher recruitment crisis, which is particularly acute in modern foreign languages. Queries about the review can be sent to mfl.pedagogy@education.gsi.gov.uk
