About this course

Secondary Education (English with Drama) PGCE:

This course will equip students with a range of approaches to teaching English and drama. They will explore ways in which dramatic activity in the English classroom or drama studio enhances and supports the teaching and learning of English, and look at drama as a separate subject. As well as reading about the theory of teaching and learning and reflecting on it through discussion, they will be involved in practical teaching and lesson-planning activities. We arrange some activities in collaboration with organisations such as the British Film Institute. A series of tasks will help them to reflect critically on their own learning, as well as children learning and development in English, drama and media. A selection of these will make up a portfolio on which they will be assessed.


The course has 3 main components: subject studies; professional studies; teaching experience.
