The Language Centre supports the initial training and in-service professional development of language teachers in a number of ways.
Warwick University offers a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) course. This is the main route to qualified teacher status for people planning to teach foreign languages in secondary schools. For information about the PGCE course, please contact the Institute of Education. PGCE modern foreign language students use the facilities of the Language Centre to develop their expertise in Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) and to refresh and improve their foreign language skills during their training year.
The Institute of Education also offer a PG Award in Foreign Language Teaching Pedagogy and Methodology. For information, please contact Bozena Beauclair, Student Recruitment and Marketting Manager - firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel: 02476522968.
Teachers already working in schools and colleges, and those planning to return to teaching, can also brush up their language skills by attending one of our Lifelong Language Learning courses or enrolling as a Single Module Study student.
In the past the Language Centre has also offered a University of Warwick accredited course leading to the award of a Certificate in Teaching Foreign Languages. This is not currently offered.
