- Goldsmiths, University of London's Department of Design runs the PGCE (Secondary) Design and Technology. The curriculum includes working with resistant materials (product design), systems and control (electronics, CAD/CAM), textiles, and food technology.
- What unifies these is the subject of Design, and the development of designing competence.This programme is aimed at preparing you to teach in two broad areas.You’ll be given the opportunity to specialise in one area to Key Stage 3 (age 11-14), and another to Key Stage 4 and beyond (age 14+).
- Key Stage 3 specialist fields are Materials; Textiles; Electronics and Communications Technology; and Food. The two Key Stage 4 specialist fields are Materials and Textiles. Through an integrated course that involves both a practical and theoretical approach, you’ll be encouraged to reach your potential as a fully qualified teacher.
- There are seminars examining the nature of Design and Technology education, and workshops designed to develop your subject expertise. By the end of the programme you must offer a second area of competence to teach to the end of Key Stage 3, as well as your specialist area at Key Stages 4 and 5.
- You engage in two design activities: one in the first term, and the second throughout the year.
- The first activity is mirrored by the same project being undertaken by Year 9 pupils in a local school, and culminates in a shared presentation.
- The second activity culminates in a presentation of a personal design-and-make project to your peers, to consider and reflect on the nature of the process of designing.
