We ensure that students achieve the highest standards and will enter the profession with the high levels of competence and commitment necessary to enhance pupils’ learning and experiences.

The ‘Take One Picture’ scheme for primary schools is a partnership that has been running for several years between Oxford Brookes University, the Ashmolean Museum and the National Gallery. Students undertake a placement where they observe a variety of teaching and learning strategies for different age groups in a non-classroom setting.
Many of our partner schools support our students in this project and this year twenty four Year 3 Primary Teacher Education students will be training for one week in the Ashmolean.
The aims of the placement are:
The DfES and DCMS (Department for Culture Media and Sport) support the project aims to encourage more primary teachers to use museum and gallery resources in their lessons – in and outside of the classroom.
As part of the students’ School Experience 3 placement they will visit the Ashmolean Museum with their class and put into practice the teaching skills developed at the Ashmolean.
If you would like your school/class to be involved in the ‘Take One Picture’ scheme please contact Carol Ducker, Senior Lecturer, Primary Art and design.
The Teacher Education Partnership is running a pilot scheme where Year 2 BA Primary Teacher Education students work with a museum as part of their SE2 placement. We hope to involve more museums and schools next year.
This is a joint project with teachers, museum educators, students and university tutors to develop a way in which students can incorporate teaching outside the classroom as a component part of their school experience. During their six week placement in school two weeks are spent teaching/learning in museums.
