Between 2000 and 2007 the projects Working Together for Inclusion, Collaborative Practice and Maximising Potential supported Modern Language Departments in eleven schools as they devised strategies for improving their provision for learners who were struggling to cope with foreign language learning.

The pilot project was conducted in four Edinburgh Schools. Thereafter the Online Project appeared as a Learning and Teaching Scotland's mini website called Maximising Potential: a resource to support inclusion in modern languages.
