Course summary

This PGDE prepares you for a fulfilling career as an innovative and creative teacher of Art and Design, to enable you to deliver an engaging and inspirational education to pupils. You can look forward to practical workshops, seminars and lead lectures which explore the context of pupils’ attainment in the subject area. You will explore how teaching and learning enables pupils to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes of the subject. You will learn how to inspire pupils to experiment, invent and create art, craft and design in the classroom and critically engage and progress in the subject.

Teaching Art and Design is a discipline that ‘embodies the highest forms of human creativity’ (National Curriculum) including drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques. LJMU Art and Design teachers require a high level of knowledge, skills and understanding to enable pupils to progress in the classroom. Through designated subject knowledge sessions and practical workshops you will explore the key knowledge and skills that define the subject. Sessions explore progression in the subject with University teaching complementing school-based learning and self-directed study through a subject knowledge development and didactics journal.

During your training you will focus on the various approaches and pedagogies for Art and Design, emphasising the application of theory to practice. A sequence of micro-teaching experiences will allow you to develop and share with your peers, your understanding of learning and teaching strategies that support effective practice in the classroom. You will then explore the signature pedagogies such as questioning, demonstration and modelling for our subject.

Sessions will help you deepen your understanding of the role, the nature of Art and Design in the curriculum and your own personal philosophy for teaching. You will explore the importance of your subject in teaching children to develop a more rigorous understanding of Art and Design and understand the historical and cultural developments of Art, considering how pupils produce creative work and explore their ideas through teaching. These sessions will help you to identify strategies to support how children learn in Art and Design.
