Opening Doors to Teaching: Understanding the Profession
Langner, Jonas; Zhok, Andrea
Research-publishing.net
Teaching, together with translating, is probably one of the employment options most closely associated with a Modern Foreign Languages degree, or at least one where the language skills acquired are an intrinsic part of the profession in question. Yet, British undergraduate language degree programmes do not systematically offer students opportunities to facilitate the transition to postgraduate study and a teaching career. With the unit described in this chapter, the authors have set out to attempt to bridge this gap by providing a balance of theoretical and practical knowledge aimed at those students wanting to pursue a teaching profession, so that they can make informed decisions about their future in the employment market. A short list of references and links is included. [For the complete volume, "Employability for Languages: A Handbook," see ED566902.]
