PGCert in German for Teaching at Post Primary Level


Maynooth University    School of Modern Languages

Full time & Part time See Course PGCert 1 year full time, 2 years part time

About the course

The Postgraduate Certificate in German for Teaching as Post-Primary Level aims to provide domestic and international candidates with an opportunity to complete the subject-specific credits they require in order to be able to submit themselves for accreditation through the Teaching Council of Ireland. It is particularly suitable for holders of a BA and HDip/PME who already teach in the post-primary system and want to add German as an additional subject to their skillset; it will also be of interest to international candidates (including native speakers of German), who have completed their teacher education, have had it approved by the Teaching Council, but require up to 30 ECTS credits in German to register as teachers of the language.
