Student teaching scheme

We provide our students with the opportunity to gain experience in teacher training via an optional module in their final year.

The Student Teaching Scheme (as part of the Student Teaching module) allows our students to go into local secondary schools and teach pupils who are learning foreign languages.

Our students have the opportunity to observe teaching by professionals, take part in classroom activities and generate new learning materials.

This in turn enhances their ICT, presentation, preparatory and organisational skills and, ultimately, their employability.

Those students who wish to go onto a career in teaching gain valuable experience which can be used to feed into their PGSE application. These students also have the opportunity to take a dedicated (optional) training session for PGSE applications with an expert in the field.
