Secondary Music PGCE with QTS

Course Description

If you've got an undergraduate degree and are passionate about training to become a secondary school music teacher, then studying our PGCE Secondary Education with QTS (Music) could be for you. You'll develop your subject specialist knowledge alongside hands-on classroom experience.

A significant amount of your learning will take place whilst on placement within one of our partnership schools. You'll benefit from being able to observe experienced teachers, gain practical hands-on experience and mentoring to help you develop into an outstanding and successful teacher. Music is an extremely rewarding subject to teach, contributing uniquely to pupils' personal development and aesthetic sensitivity. You'll develop your ability to teach music in a way that inspires and engages young people through active engagement in different forms of music making.

There is an emphasis on practical engagement with the curriculum whilst developing your understanding of the theoretical perspectives which underpin the best models of practice. Successful completion of your PGCE course prepares you to start your first teaching year (NQT year) within a secondary school setting. Our course is designed to prepare you to teach pupils in the 11-16 age range with opportunities to develop a comprehensive understanding of progression at post 16.
