Changing specialism to MFL

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by MariaMusic, Dec 29, 2011.

  1. thanks for your response smoothnewt!

    I do have the assessment documents for the first two terms so hopefully a new school will see that I have completed those. and when I contacted the borough they said that I could still complete it but not to leave it too long.

    I suppose I will apply for jobs when they come out in the Spring and see what kind of response I get. Fingers crossed!

    Many thanks again for your help!

    You only need to do the final Induction term and the new school will see copies of the sign-off forms from TERMS 1 AND 2 (either from you or from the LA).
    yOU CAN DO iNDUCTION IN YOUR NON-SPECIALIST/TRAINED SUBJECT BUT NO ALLOWANCES ARE MADE FOR IT NOT BEING THE SUBJECT YOU TRAINED IN. yOU WOULD HAVE TO MEET ALL the standards in one term of teaching a new subject , where you start off unfamiliar with the syllabus and the NC levels.
    There are also loads of unemployed MFL teachers in the UK. I have had hardly any MFL supply work in the past 5 years and see very few vacancies.
    Unless you end up in a leafy suburban school, be prepared for very negative attitudes to MFL and the consequent classroom managemnet issues as you try to cajole reluctant pupils to attempt the work.
