Using your language to teach

Morgane Laurens, French languages teacher

Morgane Laurens, French languages teacher

Many non-UK EU graduates have started teacher training in England – with some realising the benefits of training to teach their own language. This is what Morgane did, who trained on a school-led training course with Teach @Weydon SCITT. Morgane explains why she went into teaching and the benefits of teaching her language in England.

“I had some very inspiring teachers who had a huge impact on my progress and my engagement. As a result, I wanted to be able to do the same.”

“I decided to train and teach in England, after having had the opportunity to gain school experience as a language assistant in England. This opportunity made up my mind to teach in England. The school system in England is also very different to France. I was amazed about how much the teachers cared for their students and how committed they were. The pastoral care and the support provided to students was outstanding.”

“Additionally, as a native speaker, I really liked the idea of sharing my language and France’s culture. It also helps students embrace another way of seeing the world, and increases their opportunity for work and travel.”

Teaching in England was made more of a reality as I received a generous bursary; it was like having a salary at the end of each month.
