Modern Languages at Hibernia College

Teach Gaeilge, French, Spanish or German to post-primary students

Do you love Gaeilge, French, Spanish or German?

Gaeilge, French, Spanish and German are the Modern Languages Teaching Subjects offered in the Hibernia College Professional Master of Education (PME) in Post-Primary Education, the largest initial teacher education provider in Ireland. In our diverse and interconnected world, communicating in multiple languages is increasingly important.

With your specialisation and enthusiasm, you can help students develop communicative skills in Gaeilge, French, Spanish or German, develop their strategies for effective language learning and raise their awareness of cultural, social and political diversity. You will help students prepare for their future where they can apply their knowledge of Gaeilge, French, Spanish or German.

Do you have a Level 8 degree in Gaeilge, French, Spanish or German?

You must have an undergraduate degree at Level 8 or higher on the NFQ, which has an ECTS weighting of at least 180 credits. Prior teaching experience is not required to apply. 

Do you meet the Teaching Council requirements?

You will be required to complete and submit a Subject Declaration Form (SDF). Check to see if you meet the requirements for your subject.
