Manchester Metropolitan University

PGCE Secondary Art and Design with QTS

Our one-year Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) prepares you to teach the art and design secondary school curriculum.

You’ll learn teaching methods through interactive workshops – we teach you as if you’re in a school art class. This helps you to experience what it’s like to learn the same way as students, and explore the different ways you could teach art activities. You’ll have sessions across art, craft and design, from drawing to printmaking, ceramics to lens based media such as photography.

For specialist mediums, such as ceramics and paper craft, we organise a series of guest lectures, inviting artists with expertise in these practices to teach you. And, you’ll share your specialist art and design skills with your group too (students from past years have shared skills including bookbinding and Photoshop).

While you’re at Manchester Met, you’ll mainly study with your art and design group. You’ll consider how to plan lessons, reflect on your planning, look at ways to develop your teacher persona and understand how research can develop and influence your teaching practice.

You won’t simply learn theory with us on-campus though, you’ll teach classes in schools too. You’ll spend at least 120 days on placements in schools – gradually becoming the class teacher.
