Born Global – Languages & employability (UK)

born globalBorn Global is a British Academy project on language skills for employability, trade and business, and is an open and free-to-use resource for the languages community: universities, teachers, employers, researchers, and students.

Quantitative and qualitative data has been collected on the complex relationships between language learning and employability.

All data is published in full on the Born Global evidence page, and each data set is accompanied by a booklet with background information and a summary of key findings.

The language community is invited to use the project’s evidence to help make the case for the importance of languages – from teaching at primary school right through to university research.
