Months of entry
Our one-year Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) prepares you to teach across the secondary school Spanish curriculum for the 11-16 age range.
You’ll learn how to teach your main language, Spanish, for the 11-16 age range, and you may also study a second language too. This gives you the opportunity to teach your second language up to Key Stage 3 or GCSE level (this depends on your linguistic ability and qualifications).
At university, you’ll mainly study with your PGCE Spanish group. We'll teach you in your target language to provide an opportunity for you to practise and develop your language.
You’ll consider how to plan lessons, reflect on your planning, learn how research can develop your teaching practice, and look at ways to develop your teacher persona.
On your placements, you’ll normally have the opportunity to teach your main language and your second language (subject to your level in your second language, and in full discussion with yourself).
We also welcome speakers of heritage and other languages, and we do our utmost to enable speakers of additional languages to have an opportunity to teach these on placement too. Past students have contributed to Urdu, Italian, Japanese and Somali teaching – and we are very keen to keep extending the range of languages.
