School Direct (Tuition Fee) is a route into teaching at both primary and secondary levels. Trainees join other student teachers on the established Music PGCE programme at the UCL Institute of Education (IOE), whilst undertaking their teaching experience at their host school or alliance.
The UCL Institute of Education (IOE) offers one of the larger music PGCE programmes in the country, allowing students to benefit from a team of lecturers with a wide range of expertise and interests. The Music PGCE covers the nature and principles of music teaching and learning and the place of music in the school curriculum. We aim to develop expertise in a variety of teaching situations and to equip students to plan meaningful musical experiences for their pupils.
Our central London location means that we are able to draw on the world-leading expertise of professional musicians and music educators. For example, a number of subject sessions are arranged in collaboration with the London Sinfonietta, LSO St Luke's (Gamelan) and the Kingdom Choir (Gospel).
While undertaking placements in our network of partner schools, students also benefit from the wealth of expertise on offer in London and the opportunity to teach music in a vibrant and dynamic setting.
