We encourage you to create exciting, questioning and stimulating learning environments.

You'll explore how young people develop their own forms of exploration, expression and communication.

You'll learn about current educational initiatives and agendas and wider political and conceptual issues related to art and design education and how to design, develop, resource and organise art and design lessons, and how to monitor, record, evaluate and assess the art and design practices of young people.

What you study
School-based workDuring the autumn term you are placed in a secondary school Art and Design department to observe, participate in and teach alongside experienced teachers.

You'll visit a primary school to develop an understanding of younger childrens work and how the Art and Design curriculum is taught.

During the spring and summer terms you are placed in a second school, where you will experience a sustained experience of teaching in which you develop competence in the Professional Standards.

Throughout the course you will develop and implement Art and Design practices in all Key Stages of the curriculum including post-16.

College-based workThere are practice-based Art and Design workshops, lectures and seminars and individual and group tutorials, these are conducted by Goldsmiths lecturers, artist teachers and gallery/arts educators.

The content of the lectures and seminars focus on current issues including: * contemporary art and design practices
* learner identities
* visual and place-based pedagogies
* inclusive strategies for learning
* political and conceptual issues in art and design
* artist teacher identities
* assessment and evaluation of Art and Design
* designing and developing opportunities for learning

A central philosophical position of the Goldsmiths PGCE is the importance and essential element of your practice as an artist/designer/craftsperson and how this can contribute to your development as an educator.

Requirements

You should have a degree in a related subject, such as art, design, ceramics or textiles. You must be able to show evidence of drawing skills.

You should have an undergraduate or postgraduate degree (eg BA, BSc, MA, MSc etc) from a university in the United Kingdom. Your degree should be in your proposed main teaching subject area or in a closely-related subject which is a suitable preparation for entry to the programme. If your degree is in more than one subject, you should give a complete breakdown of the course units you studied within your degree when you submit your application to the GTTR: we will generally have to be satisfied that at least half of the content of your degree was in your proposed main teaching subject area.
As well as British qualifications, we accept many equivalent overseas qualifications: if you would like to know whether your qualifications meet our requirements, please contact the Admissions Office.
You must have GCSE Grade C or above in English Language and Mathematics (or recognised equivalents). Please note that English Language proficiency exams such as TOEFL, IELTS or the Cambridge First or Advanced Certificates are not acceptable.
If you do not have - or are not currently studying for - a GCSE in English or Mathematics, you may be eligible to sit the internal College tests; we advise you to apply early. We regret that these tests may not be used to overlook recent failure in GCSE examinations, and that you can only take the tests once. You cannot take the Goldsmiths English test if you are applying to study English, or the Goldsmiths Mathematics test if you are applying to study Mathematics.
