Description

This course qualifies you to teach modern languages at 11-16 (with post-16 enhancement).

For many children, school is the first opportunity to learn a foreign language. As a language teacher you will not only help them to communicate, but deepen their understanding of other cultures and promote international tolerance and understanding.

Language specialisation

All of our courses include studying two languages. On this course, Spanish will be your first language with either German or French as your second.

You’ll attend sessions to develop your own language skills, with a particular focus on your second language.

Choosing your path

You can choose to study this course as a University of York PGCE trainee or through our School Direct partnerships. The following routes are open to you:

School Direct trainees work with University of York PGCE trainees at the University for Curriculum Area sessions.

Study Details:

1 year full-time

Module Details:

Over the course of your two secondary teaching placements you’ll have the opportunity to work with different age groups (including gaining some post-16 experience), with different abilities and with students of varying dispositions. You’ll experience a variety of schools and subject departments.

You’ll experience the pastoral side of each school through active involvement with a tutor group. You will be able to engage with the wider life of each school by participating in school trips, parents’ evenings, open evenings, events such as school concerts and lunchtime/after school clubs.
