Train to Teach Spanish with our SCITT Programme

Often the best way to learn is by doing and our SCITT programme is based around gaining hands-on experience in the classroom, where you’ll have a chance to develop strategies for modern languages lessons and work with qualified teachers to plan fun, learning sessions for the students. During your Spanish teacher training, you will build an evidence portfolio of your time in the classroom which will be used as part of your final assessment.

First Class, School-Based Training

One-to-one mentoring is a key part of our teacher training and you’ll regularly meet with your Mentor and Lead Teacher in Spanish. Alongside university-led PGCE seminars, all our teachers in training have access to all the facilities at Sheffield Hallam University. You’ll also get a chance to build a support network of fellow trainees who you’ll meet as part of your four-day introduction in August/September. The people you meet are all following a similar path to becoming Spanish and modern language teachers and will be a fantastic resource during your teacher training. You will also attend the NML SCITT local hub and central training days, run by experts in modern languages teaching.
