Summary

Do you have a bachelor’s degree in art or creative practice subject and wish to teach people aged 14 and over? If you want to inspire and educate others in your specialist subject, this nationally recognised master’s level teaching qualification opens the door to teaching and assessing in further and higher education, work-based learning, pre-employment training and more.

Teaching is a challenging and rewarding career, and it’s not limited to schools. Further education and sixth-form colleges, adult and community education, prison and probation services, pre-employment training and work-based learning are also environments where talented teachers are needed. If you’re already qualified in an area such as art and design, graphic design, fine art, illustration, animation, fashion, textiles, special effects, photography, media, games art, film studies, radio and TV, dance, theatre, or performing arts, then this course offers you the skills and knowledge needed to teach your specialist subject to people aged 14 and above. This PGCE (M) course is 120 credits at the 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 master's pathway.

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 your specialist subject and how they link to current research in education.

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

This course is suitable for pre-service Initial Teacher Education (ITE) trainee teachers – so you don't need prior teaching experience or current employment in education. If you're a new in-service trainee teacher employed in the further education sector, you can apply for this course as part of your continuous professional development (CPD).
