Course Summary

This course offers you the opportunity to train to teach French, Spanish and German. The course covers all aspects of modern language teaching and learning, with an emphasis on practical activities for use in school.

Master's level assignments complement the work in schools and assist in meeting the Teachers’ Standards. These assignments aim to encourage you to be thoughtful and reflective, but also reinforce the evidence-based nature of the course assessment. Most often, you will offer one main language for teaching, but many also offer a second language, perhaps at Key Stage 3 level. Trainees are assessed on their ability to teach pupils in the 11-16 age range, but opportunities for A Level teaching are also included in the programme as appropriate. 0%) of NQT employment in our partnership schools.
