Months of entry
The PGCE Secondary Music programme is designed to meet the Standards required for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and to develop secondary teachers with a specialism in Music
It aims to do this in the context of our Secondary Partnership schools many of which are situated in east London where skills of educating children in a multi-cultural, multi-lingual urban environment are paramount.
The PGCE: Secondary Music is a partnership programme. This means that it has been written and developed in collaboration with local schools. The majority of your time will be spent in schools observing teaching and learning, considering how the theory of education and the practice link together and, of course, working with children in classroom settings.
You will be studying in a diverse community of trainees from a range of different subjects as well as studying alongside fellow trainees.
You will take part in the Virtual Schools project which involves working as a team with fellow trainees from different subject areas to address real life issues and challenges which may arise in schools
Many themes such as equal opportunities, bilingualism, meeting the needs for children with special educational needs etc. underpin the taught programme.
The subject studies elements of the programme focus on teaching Music as a curriculum subject and developing your subject specialism.
Fees and funding
Full programme fees: £9000 for UK / EU students
Home and EU ITT students may also be eligible for a bursary from the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL).
