Our Post Graduate Certificate in Education offers students and professionals the opportunity to acquire and cultivate the essential skills to progress into or further their teaching career and practice. Within this programme you'll develop the necessary pedagogical knowledge surrounding the theory and practice of teaching dance alongside refining your own creative identity as a teacher, equipping you fully to safely deliver and assess dance to the highest standards.

If you’re already qualified and experienced in the dance industry, then this course delivered by Shockout Arts offers you the skills and knowledge needed to teach dance to people aged 14 and above in this demanding and ever-evolving sector. This PGCE (M) course is 120 credits at master's level (HE7), demonstrating your ability to work independently at a high level in the field of education. 90 credits at HE7 can be transferred to a full master's award, depending on the specialist masters pathway.

Teaching staff at Shockout Arts are professional practitioners, choreographers and dance industry specialists who are keen to make the time you spend with them as stimulating and rewarding as possible and enjoy a well-deserved reputation for being approachable and interested in your progress.

This is a pre-service Initial Teacher Education (ITE) course – you don’t need prior experience of teaching or current employment in education. Through a combination of traditional study and work-based learning, you’ll be able to explore the key theories and techniques of teaching, learning and assessment. We’ll support you as you discover how to apply them in practice, how you can mould them to the teaching of dance and how they link into current research in education and dance education.

We’ll guide you as you learn to plan lessons, deliver classes, assess your students’ and provide constructive feedback. Our expert specialist and supportive tutors will work to help you become an expert, engaging and inclusive teacher with high standards of professionalism.
