Progression pathways and careers

Languages can open all sorts of doors for you in your future career, from teaching and interpreting, through to enhancing careers, such as journalism, the arts, law and the business world. The ability to speak a language offers an exciting range of travel opportunities at school, university and the world of work.

Please also note that Modern Language GCSEs now form part of the recognised English Baccalaureate (EBacc) and a GCSE language is required for entry to some of the best universities, even for non-language course.

Languages are also useful for careers in travel and tourism, Business, Finance, Media or any other career that involves travel.
