Course summary

This subject specialist programme has been rated as excellent by external examiners, students and school mentors over many years, with particular highlights being the high quality school placements with compassionate and expert mentoring; outstanding partnerships with museums, galleries and the wider arts community; thorough and proactive management and the quality assurance of the programme.

Because the course has been built around partnerships with primary, secondary and special schools, museums and galleries, community groups and artists, it offers you the opportunity to gain a PGCE in Secondary Art, Craft and Design Education with Qualified Teacher Status.

It will prepare you to become a highly effective practitioner, able to make a significant contribution to education and equipped to teach pupils across the range of art, crafts and design.

You’ll spend the majority of your time in two contrasting secondary school placements, with the remaining time at Northumbria University or at sites including museums, galleries, studios and workshops.

Thanks to our exclusive partnership with the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, you’ll also have access to BALTIC’s extensive library and archive.

Graduates from this course enjoy a consistently high employment rate and many students secure a position even before graduation.

Graduates from this programme undergo extensive and focused training in acquiring their first appointment and therefore have very successful recruitment, regularly recording excellent employability for its graduates. In 2017, 95% secured a job within three months of graduation and 100% within six months of graduation.

The vast majority of students who study this course go into secondary arts education, but those who do not often choose to work in educational roles in museums and galleries or have gone on to successfully work in international arts education and administration. In addition, many go on to study with us for a part-time Masters in (Arts) Education while employed.

Most of our recent graduates are based in the UK but some are tapping into the growing demand for outstanding graduates with a PGCE in schools across Europe and the Middle East.
