About the course

The Secondary Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is a one-year (36 week) academic course that trains graduates to be secondary school teachers of Modern Languages.

The PGCE course has been designed to train teachers to practise as a subject specialist teacher for the secondary age range (11-16). Trainees are assessed against the standards for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) across the age range. Trainees will also often gain experience of the 16-18 age range, although they won't be formally assessed in this phase.
