Modern Foreign Languages for Primary Teachers Postgraduate Certificate


Course Description

The Postgraduate Certificate in Modern Languages for Primary Teachers is intended mostly for primary teachers who need to upskill their own linguistic competences in French or Spanish to teach the language with confidence over all four years of KS2 leading to KS3. The programme has been designed in line with The Language Up-skilling Framework syllabus (DCSF, 2009).

Teaching and learning will be experiential in nature, centred on the application of learning in the classroom and through evidence-based assessment of progression and achievement. This approach will ensure that the workplace, the principal site of learning, provides an opportunity for the practical application of knowledge and skills development through action and work-based projects.

The programme will enhance competencies and confidence in teaching a foreign language (French or Spanish) and aims to:
Support professional development in language learning at Key Stage 2
Develop learner’s knowledge of second language acquisition and second language learning theories
Develop learner’s linguistic competencies in all four language skills (oral, aural, written and reading)
Enhance the learners cultural awareness of the country of language study
