The BA Secondary Education Music programme is designed to produce competent and confident secondary school teachers of music. Subject knowledge is delivered in parallel with education studies and you will be able to place all academic work in the school context through regular school placements. The overall aim of the programme is to train new music secondary teachers who can contribute to the raising of standards in schools by engaging in high quality and effective teaching.
The programme will enable you to become an effective classroom teacher in music by developing: •Appropriate subject knowledge and understanding; •The skills of planning and class management and a range of teaching strategies and skills appropriate to the age, ability and levels of attainment of the pupil (11-16); •Pupils' active participation and enjoyment of their work and ensuring that they make discernible progress, particularly through assessment, recording and reporting procedures; •Personal and professional qualities, which will help to prepare students for a successful career in their chosen profession; •A critical understanding of the curriculum and pedagogy, linking this to Educational and subject-specific knowledge; •An understanding of a range of cross-curricular issues, the values and assumptions that underpin them and their application in school and classroom practice; •An understanding of pupils in school, their similarities and differences, particularly in terms of their needs, their behaviour, maturation and levels of attainment •An ability to reflect critically on attainment and progress in Cardiff Met-based contexts and school-based experiences and use these skills to improve their practice;
The programme achieves these aims by the establishment of a programme structure with an integrated pattern of school and Cardiff Met-based work that enables statutory requirements to be met.
