Course content

The University and school based sessions deliver a programme which aims to provide trainees with a knowledge of the principles of language teaching and learning. Your training will support you in your learning, reflection and teaching in a way that integrates theory and practice at all times. The course qualifies you to teach your specialist language(s) at 11-16 (with post-16 enhancement) and will encourage you to be a reflective practitioner.

The course includes formal presentations, whole and small group discussions and practical workshop sessions. Aspects of the course give you the opportunity to pursue particular areas of interest.

Why ML?

-Do you have a passion for languages and culture?
-Have you experienced working with young people?
-Have you spent time living or working abroad?

Want to apply?

Trainees come to the course with a range of qualifications, employment backgrounds and interests. Throughout the course you will be encouraged to work collaboratively, sharing this wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise.

We welcome applications from people with a degree in French, German or Spanish; the ability to teach more than one language (as a joint or subsidiary subject) is particularly welcomed. This will help us to secure school placements for you and will aid you in successfully securing a first teaching post.

Each year we have a number of French, German and Spanish nationals on the course.

Ensure that you have undertaken some ML observation in a UK secondary school before applying.

Teaching and learning

Participation in the PGCE course is an active process. Although there are lectures and presentations, much of the course centres on workshops, seminars and school and classroom activities.

Activities emphasise team work and require trainees to share the responsibility for their learning.

Throughout the course, trainees are given guidance and support by mentors in school as well as their university tutors.

Assessment

The practical teaching requirements and formal written assignments are designed not just to provide evidence that trainees have reached the required Teachers' Standards but also as useful learning activities in themselves. Assessment is continuous, across all aspects of the course.

Trainees complete 3 Masters level assignments (60 Masters level credits).

Our secondary PGCE programmes prepare trainees to teach across the 11-16 age range. As part of the Post-16 Enhancement we offer trainees a range of experiences to develop their knowledge, understanding and skills for teaching at Post 16.

Course aims

The primary aim of the course is to enable trainees to meet the Teachers Standards and be recommended for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) . The course also aims to encourage trainees to examine, in a critical but constructive way, the current educational system and practice.

The intention is that trainees should become skilled members of the teaching profession, able to make a full contribution to educational debate and innovations of the future.
