Train to teach modern languages to 11 to 16-year-olds, and kick-start a fulfilling career as a secondary school teacher on this National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL)-accrdited course. You’ll learn the principles of effective modern languages teaching and how to develop pupils’ love of a foreign language, and we also offer a French Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) if you need to widen your language skills. Your school placements reinforce what you learn by given you hands-on practical experience in the classroom. Trainees on our PGCE Secondary courses achieve high results, with 95% receiving an Ofsted good or outstanding grade by the end of the course and 96% going on to obtain employment, often with one of their placement schools.

More about this course

This NCTL-accredited PGCE Secondary Modern Languages course leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and prepares you to teach 11 to 16-year-olds. You may also have the opportunity to work in A level environments.

You’ll focus on the principles of teaching modern languages including French, Spanish and German, and will develop school pupils’ skills in speaking, reading, listening and writing these languages.

If you only speak either German or Spanish, we offer a 12-week Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) course in French. This will enable you to teach French to pupils up to Key Stage 3. The SKE is fully funded and bursaries are available to eligible applicants.

At the University you’ll explore teaching methodology, pupil assessment and the fundamentals of how children learn. The PGCE course will also broaden your understanding of teaching in multicultural urban environments through your two placements in London, where you’ll learn how to help pupils develop their foreign language skills.

Great emphasis is placed on sharing feedback with other trainees. You’ll complete a weekly reflection and contribute to discussions online to develop your understanding of the role of a secondary teacher. This commitment to high standards has lead to positive reviews from Ofsted:

"Headteachers comment favourably on the trainees’ high standards of personal and professional conduct and on their willingness to follow school policies and procedures. Trainees speak very positively about the quality of training, particularly the links between theory and practice."
Ofsted 2015.

Your assessment will consist of four elements:
-School placement A
-School placement B, where your teaching ability will be assessed in relation to the standard for Qualified Teacher Status
-A Professional Practice Portfolio, which is compiled throughout the year, detailing personal experiences and reflections on your development as a teacher, largely in relation to your practical teaching experience
-The Educational Research Assignment, which allows you to explore an educational issue

There are no examinations.

Modular structure

This is a year-long course.

Module 1, Curriculum Studies, includes:
-The theoretical underpinning of the practice you'll take into the classroom
-Access to the pedagogical knowledge and understanding required to effectively plan and teach well-structured lessons in the Secondary curriculum
-Sessions on Modern Languages
-Training to assess school pupils’ progress in each of these curriculum areas

Module 2, Professionalism and Inclusive Practice (PIP), includes:

What our students say

“London Met was very proactive in providing support and guidance for my new teaching post. The team educated me on everything necessary to prepare me for my forthcoming role; they are highly skilled professionals who were able to support me through my interview process as well as answer any queries regarding the teaching industry. With regards to course content, I felt everything covered during lectures and the professional studies sessions was relevant to my development and future prospects as a teacher.” Jatinder Chohan, London Met trainee and Year 5 teacher at Rosedale Hewens Academy, Harlington.

“I really enjoyed my course at London Metropolitan University. There was a lot to learn, but the support and guidance from my tutor and mentors was excellent throughout and by the end of the course I really felt prepared to take on my first mainstream teaching assignment. The tutors and lecturers helped me set the right goals for my development as a teacher as well as giving me the tools to succeed. I had two great school placements arranged by the University and I feel these were key to building my confidence. I was really happy to be offered a job by one of these schools – my PGCE year couldn’t have ended better.” Maira Rodrigues, London Met trainee and Year 4 teacher at Lloyd Williamson Primary School, Kensington.

After the course

This intensive PGCE leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), which enables you to teach modern languages to 11 to 16-year-olds. Our trainees have gone on to secure school secondary teacher roles at schools including Ark Academy, Ralph Allen School, Bushey Academy and more.

Funding

Funding is available for many postgraduate courses leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Depending on your teaching subject and degree classification, you may be eligible for a bursary or scholarship of up to £30,000 through the teacher training bursary.

PGCE School Direct

The School Direct school placements work around the training calendar for the student teacher with the PGCE offered at the university. This means we can only offer places in Early Years / Primary and in Secondary teaching Maths, Modern Languages and Science with a specialism in Biology, Chemistry or Physics.

You will attend the training workshops at the university with other regular PGCE students and carry out placements of 120 days in a school or consortium of schools with a School Direct allocation. This time could be divided between two schools with some flexibility.

London Met has School Direct partnership with nearly 100 schools. This large body of schools have joined with us to build a cross-capital alliance, providing diverse contexts in which to train the new generation of London teachers.

Most of our trainees follow a programme modelled on the traditional PGCE, with time spent under tutor supervision at London Metropolitan University and the school placement divided between two partner schools.

Moving to one campus

Between 2016 and 2020 we're investing £125 million in the London Metropolitan University campus, moving all of our activity to our current Holloway campus in Islington, north London. This will mean the teaching location of some courses will change over time.

Whether you will be affected will depend on the duration of your course, when you start and your mode of study. The earliest moves affecting new students will be in September 2017. This may mean you begin your course at one location, but over the duration of the course you are relocated to one of our other campuses. Our intention is that no full-time student will change campus more than once during a course of typical duration.

All students will benefit from our move to one campus, which will allow us to develop state-of-the-art facilities, flexible teaching areas and stunning social spaces.

This course is designed for those wishing to develop the ability to design and manage robust networking and cyber security systems and at the same time, gain Cisco accreditation. Security of our systems is one of the most challenging topics of our time. The MSc provides knowledge of the very latest security principles, tools and techniques taught by specialist staff in a dedicated IT security laboratory, and an understanding of the principles underpinning effective approaches to cyber defence in response to a cyber attack. Guest speakers from industry will complement the teaching staff and work experience opportunities are available in a relevant working environment before you undertake your final project. This additional and crucial element will provide a unique student experience that will enhance your employability after graduation.

More about this course

This course offers a unique opportunity for students to blend networking technologies with Cyber Security and at the same time gain Cisco accreditation. Such a combination will attract employers increasingly seeking graduates and post graduates within this area. The practical 10 sessions will be housed in specialist laboratories including a specialist IT security laboratory. Guest speakers from industry will complement the teaching staff.

The Communications Technology group is one of the first in UK to be awarded the "Cisco Networking Academy" in 1998. The academy has been running short/evening courses in Cisco CCNA and CCNP certification since. These are two of the most prestigious vocational certifications valued by Networking and related industries. Some of the modules in both CCNA and CCNP are currently embedded in the above two existing MSc courses and students follow the relevant Cisco curriculum. The courses are supported by three major laboratories equipped with some of the most up to date Networking technology equipment and it is taught by qualified Cisco instructors.

Security of our systems is one of the most challenging topics of our time. There is an international consensus that the level of security skills will have to be increased in order to respond to the number and sophistication of threats we face. It is impossible to ignore the importance of cyber security which is recognised by governments, large and small organisations as a priority. Cyber Security provides knowledge of the very latest security principles, tools and techniques taught by specialist staff in a dedicated IT Security laboratory and understanding of the principles underpinning effective approaches to cyber defence in response to a cyber attack.
