  • Trainee Teachers of Modern Languages

    Posted: 01 Apr 2021Teaching School

    If you have a good honours degree in modern languages or are a native speaker with a good honours degree in another subject and want to make a difference, then this could be the career for you.

    There is a national shortage of language teachers in the UK and so you would be joining a respected profession with excellent opportunities for career progression.

    The National Modern Languages SCITT is different to other teacher training courses because:

    • It is a national, rather than local, provider. This means we can offer you placements across the country.
    • It focuses solely on modern languages, drawing on specialists in this field to ensure that everything you are taught is directly relevant to your future career.
    • It is a partnership between both state and independent schools, offering a range of placements in both sectors and thereby widening your employment prospects at the end of the course.

    The one-year (full-time) or two-year (part-time) course is a combination of academic training and placements in schools.

    Trainees will be based in one of our geographical hubs, which are currently:

    • Abingdon & Oxfordshire
    • East Midlands & South Lincolnshire
    • Humber and North Lincolnshire
    • Oundle
    • South East London
    • Or at the SCITT Centre in Sheffield & the Peak District.


    Course dates:

    • 1st September 2021 to 17th June 2022 (for full-time trainees)
    • 1st September 2021 to 19th May 2023 (for part-time trainees)
    • All trainees must attend our Familiarisation Week from 23rd to 26th August 2021 (inclusive).

    Salary: this is a teacher-training route, which attracts a bursary of up to £10,000 (subject to eligibility and DfE announcement every year), and a Student Loan if needed. Trainees can use this to pay the £9,250 course fee and cover their study and living costs.


    What we are looking for:

    We are looking for candidates who have the potential to be an outstanding teacher with a passion for modern languages. You must be able to demonstrate extensive subject knowledge in your chosen language or be a native speaker.

    We welcome applicants with an understanding of educational context in England but will offer a programme of acclimatisation for those trainees who need to gain this experience.

    A good honours degree is required, or a recognised equivalent qualification with a high level of fluency in at least one modern language. (If you are unsure about whether your degree classification is good enough, please talk to us).

    High fluency in English is required. GCSE English and Maths Grade C/4 or above or equivalent are also essential (and a government requirement). If English is not your first language, you may need to take The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam and gain an average score of 7.0.

    Please be aware that we require NARIC statements of comparability for non-UK GCSE, A-level and degree certificates including the corresponding transcripts to comply with Department for Education guidelines.

    It is recommended that you have evidence of some relevant teaching experience. This could be through a School Experience placement or via voluntary work you have organised yourself, or experience gained in another setting. This experience is not a compulsory requirement but would of course support your application. We fully understand how difficult it is to secure school experience at the moment, so please do not let this stop you from applying. If you are unsure about this or want to discuss it further, please contact us.

    We consider each application on its merits. Suitable applicants will be invited to a selection event involving an interview. As you will be working with children, you will be required to complete a declaration of criminal convictions and health check forms.

    Please do not hesitate to contact our team if you have any questions.

    Future prospects:

    When it comes to applying for jobs, we will give you all the support you need with applications and interview techniques to help you secure your all-important first job.

    Our team has a strong track record of supporting trainees into jobs – across subjects that are much harder to break into than modern languages.
