The PGCE Secondary Art & Design pathway is exciting, innovative and challenging. It will prepare you thoroughly for the teaching profession. Our key aim is to equip you to become a confident, high quality teacher of Art and Design with a secure knowledge of curriculum development in Wales. Emphasis is placed on working in partnership with schools, enhancing your skills through practical workshops, as well as providing you with experience of collaborative work and research with galleries and museums.
Excellent subject knowledge, creativity, imagination, motivation and the enthusiasm to make learning in Art & Design an enjoyable and purposeful experience for pupils are essential requirements of the course.
We place a particular focus on the use of contemporary Art, including Welsh examples and we work closely with outside agencies such as the Glynn Vivian Gallery, the National Museum Wales, Artes Mundi, the Saatchi Gallery and Tate Modern.
You will also have the opportunity to work as an Artist-In-Residence or gain teaching experience in a museum or gallery for a short placement to increase your employability.
In addition, you will prepare to teach the new curriculum for the Area of Learning and Experience: Expressive Arts, and the exam groups for GCSE, and A level Art and Design courses. This will involve delivering a full and exciting spectrum of creative experiences.
This pathway is designed to develop your specialist knowledge, experience and skills to enable you to use your expertise and enthusiasm to inspire your pupils across the secondary age range.

"I spoke to former students who were here who had nothing but praise for the course, the University and the tutors. When I came to visit, to meet the tutors and have my interview, it just reinforced it. I thought: ‘This is where I want to be, these are the people I want to work with.’"
