Course content

Our specialist PGCE in Secondary Education with Art and Design is a direct route to a career of which you can be proud. Art and Design impacts on our lives and this course aims to produce dynamic, confident, and innovative teachers who are committed to developing life skills.

Art and Design develops a passion for visual knowledge and understanding and the use of technology. Our PGCE Art and Design develops a range of teaching styles appropriate to the delivery of Art and Design within the National Curriculum and GCSE/A Level specifications.

Our PGCE Art and Design prepares trainee teachers for a first appointment as a teacher of Art and Design in a secondary school and assess current developments in the subject and their possible effect on teaching in schools. To develop as a teacher, you will be learning about how pupils develop their art and design skills and knowledge, and how they can be helped to a better understanding of themselves and the world through Art and Design. Furthermore, our PGCE Art and Design trainees can take up ‘enhancements’ linked to other curriculum subjects.

The trainees themselves are the most valuable resource on the course and we will be giving you the opportunity you to share your specialisms with the other trainees, and you will develop essential components of creativity and imagination such as determination, hard work, observing, thinking, experimenting, investigating, making, evaluation.
