The Primary PGCE with Music is designed to support trainees in developing the skills, values, knowledge and understanding required to meet the Teachers’ Standards. The programme will do this in the context of east London schools where it is paramount that teachers have the ability to support learning in a multicultural, multilingual urban environment. The Primary PGCE with Music aims to equip trainees with additional expertise in supporting learning and teaching in music and with the confidence and competence to take on a leadership role.
The Primary PGCE with Music is a partnership programme, written and developed in collaboration with schools. Much of your time will be spent in schools, observing learning and teaching, exploring the interface between theory and practice and working with pupils in a range of classroom settings. You will be an active participant in a diverse community of students. Inclusion, personalisation, and pupil voice are some of the key themes and values underpinning the programme. You will engage with research at Masters level.
You will participate in practical workshops which seek to develop musical confidence, ideas for activities in the classroom and an understanding of aspects such as performing, composing, progression and assessment. Your experience on this route will include spending a day in schools known for ‘best practice’ in music.
Added value: Recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
