Course summary

The course provides practical and theoretical ideas about language teaching from tutors and practising teachers. You will be able to participate in the research projects of the course tutors and develop as classroom researchers over the course. In the last research assessment exercise, the department was rated second in the UK (REF, 2014).

Description:

Our PGCE MFL course offers four language combinations:

  • French major with German as a minor
  • German major with French as a minor
  • Spanish major with French as a minor
  • French major with Spanish as a minor

Our course emphasises learning through critical reflection on theory, practice and research. We encourage ongoing development of subject knowledge through peer support and our e-learning platform designed in conjunction with colleagues from the King’s Modern Language Centre to develop your linguistic competence and pedagogical awareness. Our course is delivered by tutors who have extensive teaching experience and are actively involved in research of international quality.

This is a full-time course that consists of four required modules and two blocks of teaching experience based in secondary schools within London and Greater London. You will complete the course within ten months, studying September to June. You must take modules totalling 120 credits to meet the requirements of the qualification.

You’ll engage in education, pedagogy and professional studies sessions and curriculum workshops. These will take place in both university and school settings and will develop your expertise in general educational and professional issues, as well as subject pedagogy.

You’ll gain the skills and understanding to take up positions in schools as a teacher of your subject with the potential to contribute fully to the life of the school.

School Direct Route: The School Direct non-salaried teacher training route is composed of a partnership between King’s College London and a lead school. Students apply to the lead school for admission to the programme. The academic components of the course are delivered by King’s College London whilst the secondary school teaching experience is organised by the lead school.

Career prospects

The majority of trainees go into teaching or other areas of education; many become heads of departments or members of senior management teams; some take up careers in educational administration in the advisory or inspection services.
