Creative Arts Education - PGCert


Course Description

Our Postgraduate Certificate in Creative Arts Education is for staff in Further Education (FE) and Higher Education (HE) institutions who have either completed the Graduate Certificate in Creative Arts Education, or who have more than three years' full-time or equivalent teaching experience.

The course is registered at our Epsom campus but sessions take place alternately at UCA Epsom and UCA Rochester.

To apply for this course you must be working in a teaching or supporting learning context for a minimum of one day a week across the year. However, if you've successfully completed the Graduate Certificate in Creative Arts Education while undertaking a one day per week voluntary (unpaid) teaching placement with an appropriate course, you may be able to continue on this basis - subject to the approval of the Postgraduate Certificate in Creative Arts Education course leader and relevant subject course leader or department manager.

The course is delivered between September and April on alternate Wednesdays (10am - 5pm) at our Epsom and Rochester campuses in rotation.

Key study topics you'll explore include:

- Issues of learning and teaching (pedagogy) in creative arts disciplines

- An opportunity to enquire into the pedagogy of creative arts disciplines through conducting a small scale research project

- The opportunity to reflect on professional teaching or supporting learning practice, through the development of a portfolio of evidence.

Facilities

As a UCA student, you'll have access to excellent facilities at all campuses including library and student development services for support with dyslexia, a disability or with learning in general.

Industry Partners

Our course provides the opportunity to focus on developing teaching practice, at the same time as professional art and design practice. This dual professionalism is highly valued in FE and HE contexts.

And developing a small-scale research project provides experience of producing, writing and disseminating research. Past participants have found this valuable when applying for practice-based research funding or writing PhD proposals.

Careers

A successful career in teaching or supporting learning in FE and HE contexts requires three key ingredients. These include: a subject discipline qualification (preferably at Masters level), significant professional art and design or professional support practice, and a teaching qualification.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Education is the generally accepted teacher or supporter of learning qualification in the FE and HE sectors.

For those working in the FE sector - together with the Graduate Certificate, the Postgraduate Certificate in Creative Arts Education covers the FE and skills sector mandatory content of the Diploma in Education and Training.
