Modern Foreign Languages (2QX5)

Unfortunately, our Languages ITT programme is now closed for 2023-2024.  Recruitment commences in October 2023 for 2024-2025 courses.

Modern Language candidates will be required to train across two languages.  The main languages spoken within our Partnership schools are French, Spanish and German.

  • Modern Language applicants should hold a degree in the primary language they wish to teach, although consideration will be given to other degrees.
  • All candidates should have the ability to teach a second curriculum language, and ideally hold an A level at Grade C or above in that language. 
  •  Native speakers with the ability to speak an additional curriculum language will also be considered.

What we are looking for:

  • Applications should be able to conduct their subject interview in both of their selected languages.
  • Flexibility, initiative, resilience.
  • Be a confident communicator.
  • Great Time management skills.
  • Be able to remain calm and focused under pressure.
  • Ability to be a  team player.
  • Trainees who are prepared to work hard and be organised.

School Experience:
Whilst not a requirement of the course, it is beneficial to gain some school experience (either as observational days, Teaching Assistant roles, volunteering etc.) to understand the role of a Languages teacher in the classroom.
