Course Summary

The PGCE in Modern Languages is broadly aligned with the Northern Ireland Curriculum, training graduates to teach Modern Languages across the 11-18+ year age range. The programme aims to develop your competence and confidence in the teaching of Modern Languages and in the general professional role of the teacher. Our PGCE will appeal to you if you wish to move into teaching and if you are a graduate in Modern Languages or about to graduate in Modern Languages. Extra places are reserved to prepare those who are interested in teaching their subject through the medium of Irish in Irish-medium schools. An additional certificate in Irish Medium Education (IME) is awarded in conjunction with St Mary's University College. This PGCE prepares students for teaching in secondary-level schools (age 11-18+). You will gain qualified teacher status (QTS). Qualified teachers have found employment in secondary schools, progressing through either a subject specialist or pastoral route into middle and senior management. Others have gone on to successfully complete further postgraduate study. Queen's postgraduates reap exceptional benefits. Unique initiatives, such as Degree Plus and Researcher Plus bolster our commitment to employability, while innovative leadership and executive programmes help our students gain key leadership positions both nationally and internationally.
