Course info

Summary

Overview

This PGCE course prepares you to teach French, German and/or Spanish in the 11-16 age ranges with opportunities to gain experience of teaching post-16. It is an integrated academic and professional preparation for teaching, combining study at either postgraduate or professional level with practical training to meet the Teachers’ Standards.

About The Course

The PGCE Secondary Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) course at BGU is for people wishing to train as secondary teachers of Modern Foreign Languages, 11-16 with post-16 enhancement. Whether MFL teaching is your first new career choice, or you want to return to teaching after a career break, or you are looking for a career change by using your languages in different and more rewarding ways, your application will be given serious consideration. The course aims to create a dynamic and diverse mix of trainees, not only from different ages, backgrounds and cultures, both locally and nationally but also internationally. We, therefore, expect a typical MFL cohort to include a good mix of native speakers. Trainees following this course are encouraged to explore a wide range of creative approaches to planning, teaching and evaluating MFL lessons, covering communicative language teaching, developing classroom language, the four language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing), as well as focusing on learner strategies and learner autonomy, the role of grammar, cultural awareness and new technologies in language teaching. The course is built upon principles of inclusion and diversity in teaching and learning for all pupils, whatever their potential and achievements. Throughout the course, trainees study different methods of assessment and how they support classroom learning and teaching; in particular, the role of formative assessment in the development of metacognitive skills and language learning strategies.

You will consider the broader aspects of teaching, contexts for learning, the latest government initiatives and contemporary issues in teaching, learning and assessment. You will also work alongside trainee teachers of other subjects to consider cross-curricular aspects of education. These topics will introduce you to your career in the teaching profession.

Careers & Further Study

The teaching profession has a well-structured career pathway which moves progressively from initial teacher training through to newly qualified (NQT) status to qualified teacher. Many continue to work in our partner schools, becoming mentors to our trainee teachers, pursing further study to full Masters and Doctoral level at BGU and taking on leadership roles including Headships.
