  • Course description
    The University of Greenwich is part of the Primary Languages Teacher Training Project, a joint initiative of the Teacher Training Agency and the Ministère de l’Éducation Nationale. Alongside the mainstream one-year PGCE primary programme, the university offers fifteen places on a course intended to train graduates to teach the full primary curriculum and offer French as an additional subject. Students follow the standard PGCE primary course and attend classes on the pedagogy of teaching a modern foreign language to younger children. The university works with the Institut Universitaire de Formation des Maîtres (IUFM) Nord-Pas de Calais, a teacher training institution in Lille.

    In January students will spend four weeks teaching in a French primary school, in Lille, Douai or Arras. There are opportunities to meet French student teachers and explore northern France. Students are supported by their class teachers and by academic staff from the IUFM. A tutor from the University of Greenwich visits the students during the placement.

    The Primary French course is for graduates who already have a good command of spoken and written French. If the language was not part of their degree, they need to demonstrate they are significantly beyond A-level standard through having undertaken further study or spent a considerable amount of time in a French-speaking country.
