Our Trust of Schools

Art & Design

Art at South West Teacher Training is firmly based in the practices of our Partner Schools who have a tradition of valuing the place of the Arts within the curriculum. Trainees will be placed in schools where Art is taught as a valued subject and forms an integral part of children’s academic and extra-curricular life, adding range and breadth to the curriculum.

The South West Teacher Training Art route offers:

  • Close working with subject mentors who are leading practitioners of Art in their own contexts
  • Insight into the role of Art as a part of the curriculum in a variety of Primary and Secondary settings
  • Coverage of elements of Art as a subject including the variety of qualifications awarded in Secondary Schools; GCSE, A Level and vocational approaches
  • A course integrating academic study with practical methods in the classroom enabling practitioners to develop their own approach to Art education.

The emphasis is upon working in schools so that trainees can develop a creative, reflective approach. The Art PGCE trainees will work closely with trainees in Drama, Music and Dance as part of our Totnes Performing Arts Hub.
