The quality of trainees we receive from the University is consistently high. We value the way in which they are prepared for their school based work. We also value  the support from the University as we partner in their training for their career in teaching.

PGCE Secondary with Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)

Our Secondary MFL PGCE is run by a team of committed, passionate and experienced staff who offer a diverse range of expertise and a genuine conviction that our approach to teacher education is the best way to develop outstanding teachers. Staff have extensive school and university teaching experience, and we are working with schools to push forward the frontiers of language teaching. We support you in becoming critical and creative, and to become educational leaders in your own right!

What we offer:

  • Outstanding training in subject teaching (French, German and Spanish)
  • A phased and supportive approach, where you work with experienced teachers in two contrasting school placements to develop excellence and independence in the classroom
  • Research-inspired teaching
  • Outstanding support for Masters-level elements of the PGCE
  • Excellent student satisfaction, outcomes and employability rates

What we look for:

  • Candidates with a strong intercultural understanding who are passionate about languages and the positive impact they can have on young people’s lives
  • An understanding of what life is like for a teacher of MFL in the UK, and a desire to support young people in and out of the classroom
  • A willingness to take risks, to collaborate, and to take on a challenge!
