The programme covers the nature and principles of language teaching and learning, and the place of languages in the school curriculum. It incorporates a range of approaches to effective, inclusive learning, and develops your professionalism and critical awareness to a high level. The course places an important emphasis on cultural knowledge and broader aspects of language learning, including issues related to bilingual learners and English as an additional language (EAL), integrated with other areas such as information and communications technology (ICT) and digital, video and multimedia production.
The course has well-established partnerships with cultural and educational institutions across London, as well as European universities and teacher training institutions. The PGCE is informed by research carried out by the tutors in a variety of areas.
