Subject Specific Tast for PGCE Secondary Modern Languages Interview

You should read the National Curriculum specification for 11-16 year olds in your subject (Secondary) and make sure you are able to make a convincing case about how your subject knowledge equips you to teach the subject for which you are applying.

You are also required to plan an activity for the interview. Please follow the instructions below carefully. If you have any questions about what is required then you should contact the course leader for your subject.

You will be asked to teach the rest of the group something in a language of your choice (but NOT English) for a maximum of 5 minutes. The language (i.e. French, German or Spanish) does not necessarily need to be the language you consider your first teaching language. The teaching can be related to any aspect of the Programme of Study for Modern Foreign Languages in the National Curriculum. You should presume that the learners are complete beginners in the language and cannot presume that they have any prior knowledge.

You could focus on some items of vocabulary or language linked to a specific context e.g. ordering drinks in a cafe or introducing yourself. The teaching should focus on listening and speaking skills; you will not be allowed to use any worksheets or presentation materials.

Please direct any queries you have regarding this preparation to: ITT@londonmet.ac.uk where appropriate these will be forwarded to the relevant tutors for a response.

All other queries as per the FAQ's below.


FAQs

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Use of public transport is strongly recommended. Holloway Road Tube station (Picadilly Line) is located directly outside The University. There are also good bus services on Holloway Road. Parking is very restricted and likely to be expensive for a full day.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Call admissions 0207-133-4203 or email ITT@londonmet.ac.uk

Can I update my registration information?

If you cannot attend the date you choose, check and rebook an alternative. Please ensure you cancel your original booking. Further dates will be released but if your deadline is imminent call admissions 0207-133-4203 for further advice.

I applied to a school why am I invited to London Metropolitan for my interview?

Our partner schools (Cardinal Pole, Aylward Academy, Princess May Primary, Orchard Primary, Winchmore and Crest) all work with London Met who accredit their Teacher Training Programs. This means that you will attend the University for the interviews with applicants from all routes. Teachers from the schools may also attend and support the interview process.
