Course content

Our PGCE Modern Languages builds on your existing language qualifications to become the kind of teacher who makes a real difference in pupils’ lives. On completion of this course, you’ll be fully prepared to support pupils aged from 11 to 16 (key stages three and four) in their secondary education, and have the opportunity to teach post 16 learners supporting them in their A level studies.

PGCE Modern Languages comprises four main areas - general professional studies, curriculum studies (with modern languages specific methodology), placements in lead and second schools a minimum of 120 days over three terms) and academic assignments.

You’ll explore a range of topics to give you a deep understanding of what teachers need to do on a daily basis in order to be effective in their role. We’re committed to enhancing your natural passion for teaching, developing your subject knowledge, and helping you apply new-found knowledge and skills to lessons. To help you make a strong start funded and optional MFL Subject Knowledge Enhancement Courses are available too ahead of starting PGCE Modern Languages.
