    I'm starting a Secondary Languages PGCE in September and I'd love to know what advice current students/NQTs/current teachers would give for the PGCE, or just things you wish you'd known.

    (I apologise if something like this already exists, I did have a look but I could only find one from a few years ago)


    I´m also starting a Secondary MFL PGCE in September, haven't come across many people doing the same course on here so it's nice to find someone!

    What languages are you doing? I'm doing Spanish and French at UEA

    Yeah, we seem to be quite rare! I'm doing French and Spanish at the IOE

    Have you joined the Teacher training FB group? Lots of MFL people on there.
