The Professional Master of Education (Art and Design) (PME (Art and Design)) is a new two-year, full-time Level 9 postgraduate professional teacher education programme offered jointly by CIT Crawford College of Art & Design and University College, Cork, that leads to a professional qualification as post-primary teacher of Art and Design. It is recognised and accredited by the Teaching Council of Ireland for the purpose of registration as a post-primary teacher of Art and Design in Ireland and the EU. The programme integrates three strands of study.
- Firstly, it involves the student in direct teaching of Art and Design through two, year-long school placements.
- Secondly, students attend a range of art and design workshops and lectures that broaden the student’s subject knowledge to meet the demands of the post-primary Art and Design curricula along with exploring Art and Design Pedagogy.
- Thirdly, students attend lectures and tutorials at both CIT CCAD and UCC, which develop student teachers’ requisite professional knowledge, skills, understanding and competences.
