Course content

This Secondary English with Drama course is run collaboratively with the English and Media Centre (EMC), an award-winning educational charity. EMC tutors will provide you with support throughout the course, drawing on their extensive experience of consultancy for schools and running Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for teachers. You will also have a dedicated drama specialist tutor, who will support your development as a school practitioner, adept at working within the many varied contexts offered in the world of drama in education.

Through this course you'll learn how to work flexibly and creatively in the classroom and drama studio, inspiring pupils with a love of arts and literature and giving them the vital skills to communicate effectively. You’ll learn how to promote high standards of language and literacy, developing a strong command of the spoken and written word. Through the skills you learn on this course, you will enable your pupils to develop their creativity and powers of expression.

This exciting course leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and to the academic PGCE qualification, which is worth up to 60 credits at Master's level. The course benefits hugely from our London location and will broaden your understanding of teaching in diverse and urban environments.

Through study, discussion and teaching you’ll develop an understanding of how children learn and the methods you can use to help them develop effective English and drama skills.
