Teachers Vacancies – Could You Teach A Foreign Language?

Teachers vacancies can open up due to new schools being built, retirement, or simply because of a greater demand. Demand is especially high when it comes to teaching languages. If this is an option that interests you, how can you qualify in it and what do you need to do?

Now that the curriculum states that all children must learn at least one foreign language starting in primary school, more language teachers are needed than ever before. The most common languages taught in school are French, Spanish and German but some schools offer alternatives. These include Italian, Mandarin, Russian, Urdu and more. If you want teaching vacancies for languages then you must be competent, confident, and fluent in a foreign language. You can either be a native speaker, or you can have a university degree in a language, for example. As long as you can demonstrate extensive knowledge of the subject, you will be able to teach it. It is also helpful to understand the culture of the country whose language you are teaching, or to be willing to learn more about it. This is important since part of learning a language is to learn about the people who speak it. You may be required – or may wish – to organise schools trips abroad, particularly for older children, or special lessons and themed days within school. You will, of course, also need to be a qualified teacher in order to carry out teaching jobs. This can be obtained through attending a PGCE course, a Schools Direct scheme, a SCITT course, or a Teach First traineeship.
