How to become a MFL teacher?

Discussion in 'Secondary' started by heidix179, Nov 27, 2011.

  1. Heyy,
    I am thinking about becoming a MFL teacher,
    I am currently in year 11 and doing my french GCSE
    Next year (yr 12) i'm hoping to do French AS and spanish gcse in one year
    In yr 13 i'm hoping to do french A2 and Spanish As!

    What is the best way to become a MFL teacher?
    course? univerisity? work experience? any advice?

    Thank-you :)
  2. I would suggest you post in the MFL subject section.

    Basics, 'A' levels then either 4 years teacher training, B/Ed or
    Degree then PGCE or Degree then GTP scheme.
  3. okayy thanks :)
  4. However, as a HoD MFL I personally believe you get better subject knowledge by completing a 4 yr language degree, followed by a PGCE. Yes, it takes a year longer but you are more competent. It also allows you to keep your options open just in case you find teaching isn't for you - a BEd really only allows you you teach (IMO)
