  • Objectives
    Initially offered as a part-time postgraduate certificate programme, you now have the opportunity to continue your studies with the postgraduate diploma and MA programmes. This will enable you to carry out personal research and development activities in schools. If you have successfully completed the Training and Development Agency’s 30-hour CPD course ‘Teaching French in the Primary School’, you may apply for exemption from part of Phase 1 of the programme.
  • Entry requirements
    A key component of the National Languages Strategy is the introduction of a modern foreign language in all primary schools by 2010. If you are a non-specialist primary school teacher involved in the introduction of French lessons into your school, this course is ideal.
