Do you want to share your passion for foreign languages by teaching French or Spanish? If so, our PGCE Secondary Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) is the course for you. We also support German if you have an A Level in French or Spanish (and could therefore offer these as a second language).

What's covered in the course?

By teaching languages you’ll introduce your pupils to other cultures they may not have experienced before as well as improving their language skills. In an increasingly global jobs market, people who have abilities in foreign languages are in demand, so your ability to inspire a love of language in pupils will also provide them with the skills they need have every opportunity to succeed in the future.

Assignments and school-centred activities are structured around the development of your School Experience Progress Journal (SEPJ) which demonstrates your progress against the nationally agreed competences (the Teachers’ Standards), which all teachers must meet throughout their career. A system of continuous review and assessment of progress in the SEPJ will support your growing ability to take responsibility for your own development. 

Why choose us?

  • At least 120 days across a minimum of two placements, in line with the National College for Teaching and Learning (NCTL) requirements, supported by a subject mentor in your school and a personal development tutor at the University.
  • If you have a PhD, Master's or a minimum of a 2:2 in your undergraduate degree, in a relevant language, you may be eligible for a bursary from the (NCTL)For 2017 entry this bursary is £25,000. A higher level scholarship of £27,500 may be available from the British Council subject to ability and meeting application deadlines.
  • We’re proud of our high employability rates, with 98 per cent of the School’s postgraduate students in employment or further study six months after completing their course (DLHE survey results 2014/15).
  • If you accept an offer from us you’ll be able to take part in our free Skills Test ‘bootcamps’ to make sure you’re ready to start your PGCE in September.
  • You'll gain Master's level credits gained as part of this course that you can then use towards a full Master's degree, such as our Master’s in Teaching and Learning or Educational Leadership.

Entry requirements

In addition to the above, for entry onto a teaching course you will also be required to pass the Skills Tests in Literacy and Numeracy.

Pre-Interview School Experience

For secondary teacher training there is an expectation that you will have had some general experience of working with secondary age students in a school setting. In preparation for the selection interview you are required to engage in a teaching episode, observed by an experienced qualified teacher.

As part of the selection procedure, the interview panel will expect you to demonstrate your knowledge of languages and will assess personal qualities such as the potential to relate well to secondary age students, enthusiasm, sensitivity, communication skills and robustness and resilience for teaching.

Applicants must also meet The National College for Teaching and Leadership requirements for initial teacher training, which means being medically fit and successfully completing an enhanced disclosure via the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

Assessment

Modules are assessed through a range of directed tasks and targeted assignments. Trainee teachers are also required to complete a profile of evidence towards the achievement of the Standards required by the National College for Teaching and Leadership for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Evidence for the Standards is verified by mentors..

How do I apply?

All applications need to be made via the UCAS Teacher Training website.

We work in close partnership with schools in designing, delivering and assessing our course. You will have the opportunity to work with tutors who are actively engaged in research as well as expert classroom practitioners. 

Key benefits:

  • An Ofsted Outstanding rated course that is designed around a strong research base to provide you with the knowledge and essential skills for a successful teaching career.
  • A working partnership with a broad range of schools in London and beyond, providing unique opportunities to learn how to teach a diverse mix of students.
  • MFL PGCE students have the chance to participate in a special Erasmus programme, whereby they may undertake some of teaching practice in France, Spain or Germany.
  • Located in the heart of London.

Description

Our PGCE MFL course offers four language

combinations:

  • French major with German as a minor
  • German major with French as a minor
  • Spanish major with French as a minor
  • French major with Spanish as a minor

Our course emphasises learning through critical reflection on theory, practice and research. We maintain close links with partnership schools and colleagues. A unique feature of the course is the Erasmus opportunity to spend time teaching in the country of your second language in the summer term. We encourage ongoing development of subject knowledge through peer support and our e-learning platform designed in conjunction with colleagues from the King’s Modern Language Centre to develop your linguistic competence and pedagogical awareness. Our course is delivered by tutors who have extensive teaching experience and are actively involved in research of international quality.

University based: You will work with other trainees and tutors in your subject area to consider the principles and practice of teaching your subject including curriculum design, the development of materials, classroom management and lesson planning. You will also work with trainees from other subjects in a programme of lectures and seminar groups to examine a broad range of educational issues. During both secondary school placements there are occasional days in college for tutorials to support and monitor progress towards the standards for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). There are cross-curricular research tasks and assignments.

School based: For 24 of the 37 weeks the training takes place in schools, mainly in two complementary secondary schools but a short primary school experience. This introduces you to recognising key constituents of good teaching, helps develop your own teaching skills and gain an understanding of how schools work and how children learn. Some trainees undertake part of their teaching practice in France, Spain or Germany, funded by the Erasmus programme.

Course format and assessment

Teaching

You can typically expect:

  • the equivalent of over 50 days of academic sessions at King’s (typically three hours in the morning and/or afternoon spread throughout the academic year)
  • approximately 120 days of teaching placement.* This includes a short period of placement in primary schools (typically four days)
  • a number of one to one tutorials totaling five to seven sessions across the year
  • two visits from a tutor whilst on placement to observe lessons and monitor progress
  • regular** meetings with a mentor, who will be a member of staff at your placement school, whilst on placement
  • written feedback on all credit-bearing assignments within four weeks of the deadline.

*This 120 day figure represents the standard number of placement days. In certain cases, following assessment by course tutors and mentors, students may be required to undertake a greater number of placement days to demonstrate their ability to meet the Teacher Standards.

**Typically each trainee will have a meeting with their mentor during each week they are on placement. In certain circumstances the frequency may vary.

The types of learning commitment encompassed within the course vary depending on modules. For this course one credit represents the equivalent of 10 hours of learning and engagement.

Assessment

  • The 45-credit honours-level module will be assessed by a combination of a written portfolio (equivalent to 8,000 words) and assessment of your teaching practice against the Teaching Standards as set out by the government’s Department for Education. Progress in meeting the teaching standards will be monitored through three progress reports that will be completed by staff at the placement school.
  • The 30-credit master’s-level modules will each be assessed by a written assignment of 6,000 words heavily based on in-school research that trainees undertakes.
  • The 15-credit honours-level module will be assessed by an assignment focusing on data collection methods in the school environment.

The study time and assessment methods detailed above are typical and give you a good indication of what to expect.

Career prospects

The majority of trainees go into teaching or other areas of education; many become heads of departments or members of senior management teams; some take up careers in educational administration in the advisory or inspection services.

Course detail

Students appreciate the creative and modern approach to language teaching provided by the Modern Languages course. Content includes thorough coverage of National Curriculum and assessment requirements combined with a focus on creativity in lesson planning and delivery.

Students will develop their understanding of how children acquire additional languages and how to best support their learning in listening, speaking, reading and writing. Particular attention is paid to the effective teaching of grammar to young learners and to the development of independent learners.

Students will develop a range of strategies to motivate young learners effectively, including through the use of song, drama and ICT. As part of the course students spend some time observing in Key Stage 2 and benefit from joint training with students on the Primary PGCE MFL specialism. There are opportunities for students to continue to improve their second foreign language.

Sessions are delivered at the Bognor Regis campus but also include a number of off-site visits to local partnership schools; there are also opportunities to benefit from the expertise of visiting speakers.

Our course includes a well-respected summer conference to which prospective, current and past students are invited along with local teachers, and which provides the opportunity to hear a number of national speakers present on a variety of engaging and thought-provoking topics.

The Modern Foreign Languages modules are complemented by a Professional Studies programme, which is also based at Bognor Regis. There is also the option to gain some experience at Key Stage 2. The subject specific element of the course is delivered at our Bognor Regis Campus.

Format and assessment

In addition to your subject specialism, you’ll study a Professional Studies element of the course, which includes:

- Professionalism in Education
- Identity, Equality and Inclusion
- Closing the gap in access and achievement
- Reflective practice
- Positive behaviour management

- Pastoral care in schools
- Literacy and numeracy across the curriculum
- Research skills
- The relationship between theory and practice
- Special Educational Needs

- Building rapport and resilience

The course is assessed through observation during teaching placements and written assignments.
