This is a popular module which meets the central Government requirements in relation to the National Curriculum for Art & Design, The Professional Standards for Qualified Teacher Status (Ofsted, 2012) and other externally imposed requirements. The module will develop the knowledge, skills and confidence for you to teach art in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, and to understand how it is taught in related phases. There is an emphasis within the module for peer support and developing you as a future subject leader in art. The module covers art in wider contexts beyond the classroom and it is hoped that you develop a longer-term view on effective teaching of art, grounded in theory and practice.
To take this module, you will normally need to possess an upper second class or first class honours degree in an art/craft/design area, good ‘A’ levels and a B profile in Mathematics, English and Science at GCSE.
