The CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) offered by the UC Leuven-Limburg is an educational approach in which French, English or German are used as the language of instruction for another non-language subject. In Wallonia this approach, known by the name of ‘immersion’, has already been used for years.

What is CLIL?

In order to start out as a CLIL teacher one should meet a number of requirements.  First of all, one needs to have the legal qualifications to teach the subject.  On top of that, one should have a proven knowledge of CLIL methodology and be proficient in the language of instruction.  In Belgium these languages are limited to English, French, German or Dutch (for those who wish to teach in Wallonia).

UC Leuven-Limburg is the first university college in Flanders to offer a full-fledged programme in CLIL by means of this post-graduate. An increasing number of schools are starting up a CLIL stream and are looking for suitable teachers.  Therefore, this certificate may prove to be an important asset for a future-oriented career!

Aims of the programme 

The CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) at UC Leuven-Limburg offers to aim a substantial and well-balanced programme for both individual teachers and teams who have recently started a CLIL programme or who are considering doing so in the near future. The programme’s scope is sufficiently broad to appeal to coordinators and school management, next to dedicated CLIL teachers.  

We aim to offer general insights as well as concrete concepts that can be used by the participants in their classroom practice. Next to practical workshops and didactics, theoretical courses and managerial aspects of CLIL will be covered as well.
