About the course

On this route you will join other student teachers on one of the PGCE programmes at the IOE while undertaking your teaching experience in a participating school. The UCAS application will go to the relevant school.

The Art and Design PGCE is a challenging and forward-looking programme which prepares students to teach across the 11–16 age range, encouraging them to relate art, craft and design education to contemporary art practice. It has a strong reputation for promoting innovation in education theory, practice and policy.
