First-class Modern Language Teacher Training
We offer you a first-classschool-based training programme leading to QTS with PGCE and Masters credits. View our trainees’ testimonials.
We work closely with Sheffield Hallam University to ensure that all of our students achieve not only QTS but also PGCE with 60 Masters credits. Our students also have full access to all of the facilities at Sheffield Hallam University.
We offer a unique familiarization programme, which allows you to meet your peers and have an in depth introduction to the English education system as well as teaching and learning prior to going into your first placement school. This means that when you start in your first placement school you will feel fully prepared.
We run core training days (day school), where you will learn about all of the key aspects of teaching languages in a vibrant, varied and supportive environment and also have the opportunity to share experiences with your peers and access the support from our lead teachers.
We ensure that you will have an experienced, dedicated and school-based mentor, who will support you throughout the year through tutorials, seminars and informal meetings.
You will gain experience in a wide variety of settings starting with two weeks in a primary school, two main placements in complementary secondary schools, a visit to a special school.
