Secondary Education (Drama)

Throughout the year students focus on the use of new technologies to enhance learning in drama. They look at how stage technology, like lighting and sound, can develop an emotional response. Students also look at how digital still and moving images can impact on learning in the drama classroom. It is essential that anyone teaching in a school today is aware of when to use, and when not to use, this technology. The course leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) on completion of skills tests.

Entry requirements

Course modules

Assessment methods

Subject studies are assessed by a portfolio of coursework and a school-based special study (a teaching resource). Progressive developments of teaching skills are recorded using criteria referenced assessment proforma. Professional studies are assessed by a range of written tasks. Observation of the students, teaching and evaluative discussions with course tutors and school based mentors and teachers.
