Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

You will be supported by our expert tutors and visiting MFL teachers to teach learners of all secondary ages and abilities, to assess their progress in a range of linguistic skills and to develop their confidence in using the target language to fulfil their own communicative needs.

Our PGCE course includes QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) and we will also help you apply for a position as a secondary school teacher during the course.

Your Career with a PGCE Teaching Qualification

You'll have qualified teacher status which will allow you to immediately apply for an exciting career as a French, Spanish or German teacher at secondary school. The Master FLE and ELE will qualify you to teach in a range of international contexts, including university.

Our former students have found rewarding careers in the UK and around the globe, teaching languages in a range of international contexts. The PGCE Secondary Education with QTS – Modern Foreign Languages (11-16 years) at University of Cumbria is highly valued in the Commonwealth and beyond.

For those French and Spanish students whose home institutions have a partnership arrangement with the University of Cumbria, the PGCE with QTS is equivalent to the second and final year of Master 2. This means that you can gain two qualifications (Master 2 and a PGCE with QTS) in two, rather than three, years of study: Master 1 + PGCE with QTS.
