Leading effective CLIL programmes in schools
The swift growth of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) has caused a diversification of CLIL models designed to fit specific contexts. Although variation across programmes is inevitable, exploring the main factors for the effective implementation of CLIL may help avoid the risk of promoting inefficient practices. Our research examines how three schools have implemented successful CLIL programmes in the Catalan context by analysing, from a leadership perspective, the perceptions and practices of the schools’ principals, English department heads, and CLIL teachers.
