We are pleased to announce that in addition to the number of places that we have for 2013/14 on our PGCE Secondary, we are also working in collaboration with the Peninsula Teaching School Partnership to offer School Direct places in Cornwall. Successful applicants to these places will be able to work towards QTS only, rather than a traditional PGCE, with a strong possibility of finding employment in Cornwall, if their training is successful. For further information on these places, please visit the Peninsula Teaching School Partnership website.
Key aspects of the programme include the place of drama in arts education, the value of theatre and performance in education and links with English, citizenship and PSHE. There is also work using ICT in Drama teaching.
The Faculty has a long tradition of Drama at undergraduate and postgraduate level and has access to large, fully equipped drama performance spaces to complement the programme's new learning facilities.
Much subject work in this Drama PGCE develops the group's own knowledge of genres and practitioners. Theatre in education is just one aspect of school experience developed. The trainee group itself is a major source of expertise, drawing on its participants' rich knowledge and experience.
Your own creative potential is recognised both through your work with pupils in schools and through practical explorations of theatre and performance within the PGCE trainee group.
