TSST MFL Programme for Teachers

Harris Academy Chafford Hundred Teaching School is pleased to confirm that we have secured Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST) funding, to support MFL teachers to enhance their Spanish, French or Mandarin teaching and be equipped to meet the demands of the new GCSE specification.

Schools looking to increase the capacity in their MFL departments by equipping staff to teach French, Spanish or Mandarin will receive a bursary of £400 on successful completion of the training.

This course focuses on both linguistics & pedagogy, and supports MFL teachers wishing to enhance their French, Spanish or Mandarin teaching.

Participants of this programme will:

  • Improve their subject knowledge & confidence in the teaching content of the new National Curriculum for KS3.
  • Improve their subject knowledge and confidence in the teaching and assessment requirements of the new GCSE specifications.
  • Develop different strategies and improve pedagogy, including leading the learning of all abilities.

Sessions will cover:

  • Holistic foreign language learning
  • Conducting an oral exams
  • Assessing written papers
  • Reading and listening skills
  • Opportunities to teach a lesson and get feedback.

The course is designed by David Shanks and Natalie Blondeau, Harris MFL Consultants who have extensive experience teaching MFL.

Training Sessions:

There will be 12 twilight sessions between November 2020 and March 2021 - dates to be confirmed and all training will take place online. 

Please note that when applying for a place, you signal your commitment to attending all of the sessions. Schools will receive the bursary payment once participants have completed all of the training.

Eligibility and conditions:

TSST is a Government funded programme designed to up-skill teachers and increase capacity. Generally speaking, to be eligible for a funded place teachers need to meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • A non-specialist teacher who could potentially teach MFL in addition to, or as their main subject
  • A non-specialist MFL teacher not currently teaching MFL and who needs refresher training to enable a move back to a MFL role
  • A non-specialist MFL teacher who has the capacity to teach a second language in addition to their language specialism
  • Overseas trained teachers who are resident and eligible to work in England
  • Be a language teacher returning to the profession after an extended break. Returning teachers, who haven’t already registered, should Register at Get into Teaching
  • Be a supply teacher who would like to be able to teach French, Spanish or Mandarin and does not have a contract with a school and are committed to returning to a permanent post in a secondary school or sixth form college

ITT trainees, higher level teaching assistants (HLTAs), teaching assistants (TAs) and other support staff are not eligible for TSST courses.

The programme is fully funded. 

Applications can only be made with full support of the Head Teacher/Principal.

There are a limited number of places available.
