Course info

Summary

Do you have a bachelor’s degree in a creative or performance subject and wish to teach people aged 14 and over? If you want to inspire and educate others in your specialist subject, this nationally-recognised Master’s level teaching qualification opens the door to teaching and assessing in further and higher education, work-based learning, pre-employment training and more.

Course Details

Teaching is a challenging and rewarding career, and it’s not limited to schools. Further education and sixth form colleges, adult and community education, the prison and probation services, pre-employment training and work-based learning are also environments where talented teachers are needed. If you’re already qualified in an area such as art and design, special effects, dance, theatre, or performing arts, then this course offers you the skills and knowledge needed to teach your specialist subject to people aged 14 and above. Offering 60 credits at Master’s level that can be transferred to a full Master’s award, it’s designed to show your ability to work independently at a high level in the field of education.

This is a pre-service Initial Teacher Education (ITE) course - you don’t need prior experience of teaching or current employment in education. Through a combination of traditional study and work-based learning, you’ll be able to explore the key theories and techniques of teaching, learning and assessment. We’ll support you as you discover how to apply them in practice, how you can mould them to the teaching of your specialist subject and how they link into current research in education.

We’ll guide you as you learn to plan lessons, deliver classes, assess your students’ performances and provide constructive feedback. Our expert and supportive tutors will work to help you become an expert, engaging and inclusive teacher with high standards of professionalism.

Career Opportunities

The Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) M 14+ (Art, Creative Practice and Performance) is a teacher education course for graduates who wish to teach in the Further Education and Skills sector of education; for example in adult and community education, further education, sixth form colleges, the prison and probation services, pre-employment training and work-based learning.

In this sector, you’ll have the opportunity to work with further education learners who range in age from 14 years to adult. These students come from different backgrounds and experiences and may enter further education from local schools, the community, industry or local businesses.

This course emphasises the teaching of creative/art and performance related subjects. It’s designed to help you integrate your specialist subject knowledge with educational theory and practice, supporting you to become an effective curriculum specialist teacher.

What Can I Do With This Qualification?

In addition to working in FE colleges, sixth form colleges and schools there are also significant opportunities to work in a range of other educational sectors. The work-based learning sector ensures people are ready for work and have the latest skills. It includes working with apprentices, young people who are not yet ‘job ready’, as well as employed adults who need to update their skills. Job opportunities within this sector are often with training providers in the private sector, but can also be within the work-based learning units in colleges.

On successful completion of the PGCE M 14+, you’ll be awarded 60 credits at level HE7 which can be transferred to a full Master’s award (comprising 180 credits including the dissertation).
