I'm new here and seeking a bit of help please,
I'm in my second year of studying a Ba(Hons) Illustration at the University of Huddersfield. Once I finish I would like to do a PGCE to teach Art/Fine Art/Illustration/Graphics at As/A Level and was wondering if someone could give me some guidance in terms of which is the right course to be looking at.
I've looked at:
and none of them seem to offer the right PGCE, they just seem to do PGCE's for Maths/Sports/Music est. but not art...
Can anyone point out where I'm going wrong or is there's an institution near these locations which offers the right course?
Thank you for your helps guys!
the best thing to do isto go in the GTTR website and do a course search for art. You can see courses with or without vacancies, full time/ part time etc. I'm an illustrator by background and that's where I found the right course for me. I will be studying in the Institute of Education in London. Also, I studied my BA at the Manchester Metropolitan University and loved it and I hear they have a PGCE art so you might want to check it out.
here's the GTTR website: (don't forget to change the search option to see courses without vacancies for this year, if you are not planning to apply just yet)
one of the nest PGCE'S in the country fore art and design. is Northumberland.
Hello, Well I studied Illustration in Blackpool university and gain a ba(hons), Now im studying a PGDE at Bolton University so I can become a teacher to teach in the arts sector... You can do a PGDE OR PGCE at any college/ university. All you have find work placment, usualy the college/ university will get the work placement. My advaice first of all would be get on a PGDE course first of all and it all come together. One step at a time is the key.
Hope that help
I did a PGCE in Art and Design at Northumbria university in Newcastle and it covered all aspects of Art and design, video, animation, fine art, sculpture etc. Its a fantastic course with one of the highest OFSTED reports. The course has been cut, when I did it nearlly three years ago there were 18 of us and next years cohort is going to be 8 I think. My friend did a PGCE in Art and Design at Liverpool and I know there are a few universitys in London that do them.
