The University of Portsmouth is a ambitious institution with a track record of success. One of only four universities in the south east of England to achieve a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework and ranked in the top 150 in the Times Higher Young University World Rankings.

The School of Education and Sociology at the University of Portsmouth seeks a Teaching Fellow in Modern Foreign Languages Initial Teacher Education to lead on our undergraduate degree programmes with a pathway to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). In collaboration with The School of Languages and Applied Linguistics, the successful applicant will be responsible for the teaching, training, and assessment of undergraduate students working towards QTS in Modern Foreign Languages.

The post-holder will have Qualified Teacher Status and a track record of proven, successful experience as a Modern Foreign Languages Teacher in a relevant school/setting. They will be expected to undertake all aspects of the teaching and assessment of trainees, in line with the current Department for Education and Ofsted requirements for teacher training, as well as engaging in their own scholarly and research activity as appropriate to ensure the programme reflects the best practice in languages teaching. Experience as a mentor or coach for trainee teachers or other education professionals is desirable.

Working alongside the existing teacher training team they will be responsible for the day-to-day management and quality assurance of the undergraduate MFL QTS pathway. This will involve observations of trainee teachers in the classroom, final assessment against the Teachers’ Standards for the award of QTS, as well as building and maintaining good working relationships with school-based mentors and colleagues. The university has a long and successful track record of teacher education with all of its courses graded as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, and we are currently expanding our provision further.
