About PGCE Modern Foreign Languages
On our PGCE course at Cardiff Met you will have the opportunity to critically engage with theories and approaches to language teaching such as the use of target language in the classroom, the teaching of grammar, assessment and differentiation and cross curricular pedagogies. Other aspects will include a focus on teaching GCSE and A level languages, the use of IT in the classroom, using authentic resources and decolonising the MFL curriculum.
The PGCE course will provide you with the necessary skills, knowledge and critical awareness to embark on your teaching career. At Cardiff Met you have the possibility to train as a teacher of French; French and Spanish; Spanish and there a very limited number of places to train in French and German.
Our subject specific sessions are supported by guest speakers from our Partnership Schools, regional consortia, and Cardiff University to enrich our programme. During our subject specific sessions, you will have the opportunity to explore research and discuss how it can be embedded into our teaching practices.
