Modern Foreign Languages PGCE
Trainees undertaking the Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) route develop a personal philosophy of foreign language teaching and learning as well as an understanding of where their subject sits within the secondary curriculum.
Trainees explore crucial subject specific debates and key pedagogies and consider how these impact on classroom practice. For example, trainees have the opportunity to engage with MFL-specific issues such as the teaching and learning of culture, the place of target language, and content and language integrated learning (CLIL) on both a theoretical and a practical level.
Through blending university based sessions with a wide range of enrichment visits trainees develop their subject and curriculum knowledge as well as their ability to inspire and challenge language learners through effective and creative teaching.
