Training to teach arts

By training to teach in the arts, you’ll open your pupils' eyes to the importance of culture and its place in society, making sure they can pursue careers in some of the most experimental and creative of industries.

As you train to teach the arts, you’ll be shown how to manage and control your classroom to ensure you get the best out of pupils. Whether you’re demonstrating an artistic technique, introducing new genres of music or teaching performance skills, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge you need to make the arts accessible and enjoyable for all pupils.

You’ll also discover how to introduce classes to the work of various artists, playwrights, performers and musicians, passing on an appreciation for their work and recognising their significance in and the development of their discipline.

And once you’ve qualified, you’ll benefit from a competitive starting salary of at least £22,917, or £28,660 in inner London. You'll also have lots of opportunities for rapid career progression and pay increases.
