Specialist language teachers 'urgently required'

England's teacher training agency is urgently recruiting modern foreign language teachers to cope with a surge demand for the subject at GCSE.

The number of pupils set to sit language GCSEs next year has increased by 22% to 52%, it said.
The rise is thought to be tied to the English Baccalaureate, which requires GCSEs in language among other subjects.
