About PGCE Secondary Modern Foreign Languages at University of Chichester

Students appreciate the creative and modern approach to language teaching provided by the Modern Languages course.

Content includes thorough coverage of National Curriculum and assessment requirements combined with a focus on creativity in lesson planning and delivery.

Students will develop their understanding of how children acquire additional languages and how to best support their learning in listening, speaking, reading and writing.

Particular attention is paid to the effective teaching of grammar to young learners and to the development of independent learners.

Students will develop a range of strategies to motivate young learners effectively, including through the use of song, drama and ICT.

As part of the course students spend some time observing in Key Stage 2 and benefit from joint training with students on the Primary PGCE MFL specialism.

There are opportunities for students to continue to improve their second foreign language.

Sessions are delivered at the Bognor Regis campus but also include a number of off-site visits to local partnership schools; there are also opportunities to benefit from the expertise of visiting speakers.

Our course includes a well-respected summer conference to which prospective, current and past students are invited along with local teachers, and which provides the opportunity to hear a number of national speakers present on a variety of engaging and thought-provoking topics.

The Modern Foreign Languages modules are complemented by a Professional Studies programme, which is also based at Bognor Regis.

There is also the option to gain some experience at Key Stage 2. The subject specific element of the course is delivered at our Bognor Regis Campus.
