Year one
You will be introduced to and engage in an Arts Education Community of Practice where you will critically examine your own teaching methods informed by reflection and, using a range of relevant theories, viewpoints
and models of learning and teaching.

You will advance your skills in teaching and learning in light of new experiences and understandings. You will have the opportunity to apply skills, new insights and understanding to your practice, critically examine your
impact on your learners’ experience and obtain feedback both from tutors and peers to inform future professional development and practice. You will also have the opportunity to develop your understanding of the Gaelic culture and explore the key cultural developments that impact on your work.

Year two
In year two you will undertake a workbased learning and teaching project in your performing arts subject discipline where you will be required to develop effective learning environments and approaches to student support and guidance, design and plan learning activities and/or programmes of study, teach and support learning, and assess and give feedback to learners. Your project will be piloted/delivered with a group of students of your choosing and critically evaluated to inform future learning priorities. You will also continue your exploration of Gaelic cultural traditions and the themes that underpin the evolution of your own work as an artist.

Year three
In year three, you will design module learning outcomes, content and assessment modes in order to develop, deliver and evaluate a final project situated within your own professional context, synthesising your exploration
into learning and teaching and Gaelic culture in years one and two. You will work with a professional mentor to help you build your project and on completion of the project you are required to find appropriate ways to
disseminate your findings to maximise on the impact of your work within the Gaelic arts sector.

Year one

Your first year centres around two learning and teaching modules, Approaches to Critical Artistry and The Teaching Artist. The third module, The Gaelic World, provides an overview of the historical,
geographical, cultural and political context for Gaelic artists.

Year two

Your year will begin with the learning and teaching module in which you will design, deliver and evaluate an education-based project. The second module of the year, Traditional Culture and Literature of the Gaels, provides an opportunity to investigate the wide range of Gaelic source materials that have inspired Gaelic
artists and have helped shape the cultural landscape.

Year three

You will study a final module which presents an opportunity for you to devise, negotiate, undertake and evaluate a major project designed to synthesise your learning on the previous modules, progress your development as a Gaelic arts educational professional and to contribute to the evolution of the Gaelic cultural landscape.
