Course summary

This PGDE course prepares you for a fulfilling career as an effective and creative teacher of Drama. The course involves an exciting blend of practical workshops, learning from experts in the field and engaging with local theatres to explore how Drama is taught in schools. You will experiment with how teaching and learning enables pupils to know, apply and understand the knowledge, skills and processes of Drama.

During your training, you will focus on the various approaches and pedagogies for Drama, emphasising the practical application of theory. A sequence of micro-teaching experiences allows you to develop and share, with peers, your understanding of learning and teaching strategies that support effective practice in the classroom. You will explore signature pedagogies such as collaborative learning and group work. Sessions will help you deepen your understanding of the role and nature of Drama in the curriculum and your own personal philosophy for the subject. You will also be able to explore the importance of your subject and its links to other curricular areas. These sessions will help you identify strategies to support how children learn in Drama.

The subject knowledge sessions focus on the fundamental skills and knowledge areas of the Drama curriculum such as devising, style and form and preparing pupils for examinations. As well as broadening your own Drama knowledge, these sessions introduce you to a range of strategies that allow you to make your knowledge as accessible as possible to students.
