On this course you can:

* Undertake placements with our network of experience training schools
* Train in classroom management techniques as you study the theory underpinning them

Successful completion of the PGCE in modern foreign languages will enable you to gain Qualified Teacher Status and will provide for a career in secondary teaching. On recent figures, over 90% of our students each year gain employment with 60% of those getting jobs in our partnership schools.

Applications should be made through UCAS Teacher Training.

Training Programme code:

Contents

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 computer science
* Special Needs and Inclusion
* Assessment
* Teaching and assessment

Teaching and Assessment

The course lasts 36 weeks between September and June, with one third of the time spent in University-based sessions such as lectures, group participation and guided reading, and the remainder working in at least two of our partner schools.

You will be supported by tutors while in the university, and by professional and subject mentors while in schools, encouraging the development of teaching skills specifically for the secondary sector and blending work-based learning experience and supervised teaching practice.

The programme offers trainees a choice between the Professional and the Postgraduate route, with the latter allowing trainees to graduate with 60 M-level credits.

How are you assessed?

The assessment procedures adopted throughout the course are mainly formative in nature and designed to ensure that trainees meet the Standards for Qualifying to Teach.

In each term you will be assessed on:

* The development of your teaching skills
* A formal assignment
* An interview in which you will demonstrate the evidence collected towards the standards including your subject knowledge

Throughout the course you will collate a portfolio of evidence based on schoolwork, observations of teaching, tasks and assignments.
