A petition started by a Peterborough teacher to save languages provision to schools is nearing its 10,000 signature target.
Jane Driver, head of languages at The Voyager Academy, is petitioning the Government to stop cuts to key language learning projects rolled out by Routes into Languages.
Funding is due to stop in July and Ms Driver has already collected almost 7,000 signatures but needs to reach five figures before the Government has to respond.
Voyager’s Zoah Zainab, who came fourth nationally in a languages contest, is pictured with Paul Kaye from the European Commission, Justin Sycamore from Vocab Express, and the Deputy Mayor of Cambridge, Councillor Jeremy Benstead.
