Overview

Graduate Certificate in Language Teaching

This course is designed for qualified teachers who wish to become LOTE teachers in French, Italian, Modern Greek, Spanish or Indonesian but have limited or no knowledge of that language. More advanced students may be admitted, with the permission of the coordinator of the relevant language, if they wish to improve their linguistic competence.

This course will enable teachers who may not have completed studies in a second language, as part of their undergraduate degree, to complete an 18-unit program in teaching a second language at primary level.

This course articulates with the Graduate Diploma in Language Teaching and Master of Language Studies.

Note: These qualifications do not qualify graduates for Teacher registration.
