Learning & Teaching

Our Creative Arts Education courses are designed to help you teach and support the learning of students in creative arts environments, both in Further Education and Higher Education contexts.

The Graduate Certificate covers the three key areas of how students learn: developing good inclusive practice, assessment, and feedback and evaluation. You can study these areas in relation to your own role and students.

After considering the key issues affecting teachers and learners in contemporary creative arts contexts, the Postgraduate Certificate introduces you to educational research. You’ll reflect on how your teaching practice relates to UK professional standards for teaching and supporting the learning of students in Higher and Further Education.

If you already have a Post Graduate Certificate and/or Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) - as well as substantial teaching or supporting learning experience - our Masters in Creative Arts Education may be the best option for you. This course gives you the opportunity to top-up to a full Masters qualification, primarily through research enquiries. You’ll refine your research expertise and deepen your understanding of the contemporary context of your teaching or supporting students’ learning role. You’ll be able to study the course alongside your usual practice and participate in workshops, seminars and tutorials designed to enhance the learning experience of creative arts students.
