    Why complete a PGCE in Modern Foreign Languages?

    Modern Foreign Languages is a core subject in the National Curriculum and you will accept the challenge of training to be part of a rewarding and changing profession.

    In this one-year course, your main concern will be with the development of your professional competence as a teacher of Modern Foreign Languages. You will need to focus not only on the teaching of Modern Foreign Languages itself, but also on developing an understanding of educational issues pertaining to teaching and learning, classroom interaction, the school curriculum and the school and society. As well as becoming a competent classroom practitioner, you will need to be able to make informed decisions and recognise the need for further development.

    In addition to this, you will be expected to teach the three disciplines within Modern Foreign Languages up to GCSE level and update your subject knowledge. This is a process that will start in the PGCE year, but will continue throughout your teaching career. You will be expected to enhance your subject knowledge through background reading, research, working in peer subject development groups, teaching and working on examination papers.

    The course is essentially practical and two-thirds of your time will be spent in school where you will be working closely with mentors and other school staff.

    Throughout the year you will be engaged in considering a range of subjects including:

    -Subject knowledge enhancement
    -ICT in the classroom
    -Lesson planning
    -Classroom management
    -Research into the pedagogy and psychology of learning MFL
    -Special needs and inclusion
    -Assessment
