What is the Modern Foreign Language PGCE?
The MFL PGCE or Modern Foreign Language Postgraduate Certificate in Education is a one or two-year long course that is intended to provide trainee teachers with all the skills and experience needed to gain employment in the education industry as a teacher of modern foreign languages. After a successful application to our MFL PGCE course, you’ll be invited to interview at one of our partner schools before enrolling and receiving your confirmed date for the four-day induction to the training programme. After final assessment and completion of the SCITT, our teachers gain Qualified Teacher Status and are rewarded the PGCE with 60 Masters’ credits.
Criteria set by the Department for Education
What Is Included In Our MFL PGCE Programme?
Our Modern Foreign Language PGCE offered as part of our SCITT teaching programme is designed to meet your needs as you train to reach Qualified Teacher Status and has been created to meet the Teachers’ Standards criteria set by the Department for Education – the body responsible for teacher training in England.
Individual Training Plan
An ITP is created with the help of your placement school and mentor at the start of your SCITT. This is regularly reviewed during your teacher training year to keep you on track.
You will be assigned a dedicated mentor and Lead Teacher, both who will meet for regular one-to-ones and offer guidance and support during your teacher training.
Evidence of your training activities including Online Modules, classroom experience and Day School are recorded in a personal portfolio that you will present for final assessment.
A key part of our PGCE is encouraging independent learning and we will ensure you can stand on your own two feet and take initiative as you progress.
