Our four key principles of collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and care form the foundation of our practice and partnership. They are interwoven through all aspects of our curriculum and across university and school training. They form the basis of our commitment to social justice.
The Bath Spa ITE Partnership Curriculum is an ambitious curriculum which has been developed with our Partnership Schools. It is a carefully sequenced and integrated curriculum which comprises 8 components:
- Professional behaviours and responsibilities
- Subject, pedagogical and curricular knowledge
- How pupils learn
- Planning for Learning
- Adaptive teaching and inclusion
- Assessment of pupils
- Managing behaviour and the environment for learning
- Pupil health and wellbeing
Throughout the programme you will gain, apply and refine your knowledge of teaching, pedagogy and classroom skills. A blended approach to learning has been adopted which provides face to face teaching as well as time to access key materials online. Opportunities exist for you to meet and learn from current classroom practitioners ahead of school placements.
As part of your academic award you will undertake two assignments which will contribute 60 credits towards a Masters award. These assignments are informed by the relevant research literature and theories that will complement and enrich your professional practice whilst enabling you to develop your subject expertise.
Bring your students into the limelight. Nurture talent, imagination and self-expression, all within the beautiful surroundings of Georgian Bath.
The Drama PGCE is a practical course that enables you to teach a broad
spectrum of student backgrounds and abilities. Children’s learning is right at the heart of the programme, so we consider what ‘understanding’ really means and how this can be developed and assessed.
Throughout the course, you’ll work closely with leading practitioners and
theatre companies to explore ways in which the performing arts industry
and teachers can support the creative education of young people. And,
above all, you’ll learn the skills required to become an innovative and
effective drama teacher, alongside opportunities to pursue further goals
