Course overview

This initial teacher training course equips you to share your passion in a creative subject and inspire young people to fulfil their potential. D and T is a core subject in the National Curriculum at Key Stage 3 and there will always be a need for good D and T teachers.

Currently (2015) there is a national shortage of D and T teachers, so this provision fills an essential gap in the shortage of training providers across the country. PGCE Design and Technology is a 36-week Post-graduate programme which prepares trainees to teach in an 11-18 education environment. Recent developments in the past year have resulted in an innovative programme which is at the cutting edge of ITE.

This programme is also offered as part of our School Direct route.

University-based subject academics have extensive experience in school and have published and exhibited their work internationally and had influence in developments in the subject both on a national and international level.

The course has two strands. The first strand is based at the University and provides a solid grounding in theory and practical issues. The second strand is based in partnership schools.

The trainees spend a TDA specified minimum of 120 days on placement in partnership institutions. Theory informs practice and pedagogical knowledge is developed alongside subject specialisms. The Teaching Experience(s) with an emphasis upon a Partnership between the University course and the school further develops the concept of putting theory into practice whilst gaining confidence through increased contact with the school environment and facilitates progression towards the ITT professional standards. Many partnership schools employ trainees after successful placements.

It is expected that trainees, on being awarded QTS should offer at least one specialist field of knowledge to key stage 5 and a second specialist field of knowledge to key stage 3. All trainees are specialists in ‘Core’ design, regardless of their specialist field of knowledge. Fields of knowledge include Textiles, Food, Resistant materials and Electronics with Graphics throughout each area.
D and T at Sunderland adhere to the Design and Technology Association (DATA) subject related guidelines. As the professional body of Design and Technology, their requirements and benchmark statements are strictly adhered to within our programme and practical teaching experience is gained.

The University of Sunderland has a heritage of teacher training which dates back to 1908 so you can be confident that our courses are excellent preparation for a teaching career in which you can inspire young people to realise their potential.

The skills and techniques acquired on this course are to the level necessary for theatre, television, film and animation industries..

During the year students acquire an understanding of professional practice and standards, and gain in-depth skills and experience in scenic art techniques and their application, combined with the practice of managing a scenic art department.

The Course has 3 very intensive terms during which students paint the sets for the School’s six main house public productions, offering them the opportunity to see their finished work used on stage in a wide range of public performances and venues. Teaching is led by the School’s Head of Scenic Art in collaboration with visiting industry professionals who provide master-classes in a range of skills and techniques that include; life drawing, portraiture, perspective, marbling, wood-graining, polystyrene carving and painting for animation. The scenic art students work collaboratively with the School’s other production departments, and most especially with design students. Furthering their introduction to the industry, work placements with principal companies are arranged during the course; particular attention is placed on students developing their own professional portfolio. Upon graduation students will showcase their work in a public exhibition and be interviewed by some of the UK’s leading industry practitioners. In a freelance industry most of our graduates begin working as assistants for scenic artists, scenic workshops and large theatre companies, eventually becoming supervising scenic artists themselves.
