PGCE Secondary Art and Design with QTS


Course Description

Manchester Metropolitan University has a longstanding national reputation for providing high-calibre initial teacher training with over 20 Secondary specialisms available. The Faculty of Education has a well-established partnership with over 800 secondary schools and colleages across the North West region and beyond.

This PGCE covers all aspects of becoming an effective and successful teacher of art, craft and design in the National Curriculum as well as GCSE and AS/A level. Trainees benefit from excellent studio facilities and an art gallery featuring school and course-related exhibitions. There is a strong emphasis on individual art practice - trainees will be encouraged to share this with peers and pupils in schools.

A minimum of 120 days school-based practice training is combined with university-based training and periods of independent study. Trainees are supported throughout by university and placement mentors.

All PGCE applicants will need to pass pre-entry Professional Skills Tests in Numeracy and Literacy. We also recommend you check the Department of Education website at http://www.education.gov.uk/get-into-teaching for the latest updates.
