PGCE Secondary Modern Foreign Languages with QTS


Course Description

The Faculty of Education has a longstanding national reputation for providing high-calibre initial teacher training with over 20 Secondary specialisms available. We have a well established partnership with over 800 secondary school and colleges across the North West region and beyond.

MFL is a national shortage subject and government priority with training bursaries available and this course has an excellent reputation. There is a growing need for high-calibre language teachers and as such our trainees are very employable. Where appropriate, sessions are conducted in the relevant target language. We welcome applications from native speakers.

We offer specialisms in French, German, Mandarin and Spanish. Subject to confirmation of DfE funding, we usually run Subject Knowledge Enhancement courses as part of the PGCE. These will be identified at interview for applicants who need support learning a second language and confirmed with a PGCE place offer.

Trainees take a course of supporting study, including English as an additional language (EAL) and special educational needs (SEN).
A minimum of 120 days school based practice training is combined with university based training and periods of independent study. Trainees are supported throughout by university and placement mentors.
