Why study Secondary Education at Dundee?

You will work alongside tutors with a wealth of experience to share with you and the ability to help you to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding you will need to fulfil the role of a secondary school teacher. We offer excellent resources and facilities and a high level of support. You will benefit from placements in two schools, so that you may hone these skills further. We liaise closely with school colleagues, so that they are in a strong position to afford you the experiences you need to make the most of your placements.

Masters level study

The programme offers students the opportunity to have their non-practice placement assignments assessed at Masters Level (SCQF Level 11) and so accrue a total of 60M credits whist they complete their programme of study. These credits can be used towards future Masters study, representing a considerable saving in both time and cost in relation to the usual Masters study arrangements. We are working closely with the MEd team within the School to ensure smooth transitions to the Masters programme for those who pursue this possibility.

[[Professional accreditation]
The resulting award of PGDE(S) for all successful participants is recognised by the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS)General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) and widely outside Scotland, thus widening employment opportunities.

Who should study this course?

This course is suitable for those who have already secured a relevant degree and now wish to enter the field of Secondary Education, initially as a subject teacher.

"I thought the course at Dundee was excellent, I left enthused and prepared. Keep doing what you are doing."

Secondary Education (Home Economics) PGDE
Secondary Education (Mathematics) PGDE
Secondary Education (Physics) PGDE
Secondary Education (Dual Qualification) PGDE

How you will be taught

The programme lasts for 36 weeks, from August to June. This 36-week programme is necessarily very intense and is comprised of 18 weeks in University plus 18 weeks (a GTCS requirement) on professional practice placements (9+9 weeks).

Students are associated with two schools (one per semester) in order to capitalise on opportunities to gain deeper understanding and to participate in the wide spectrum of aspects associated with the lives of schools.

We also allow students to develop their areas of strengths/expertise and to support them in areas where they feel less secure. In order to meet the varying needs of students and to address issues as they are identified, we offer "Module Enhancements". Students will be able to choose from a range of learning enhancements which provide enriching experiences for the students, enabling them to personalise their studies. Students will thus be able to capitalise on their strengths and develop areas of interest and need. This approach will utilise workshops, lectures, seminars, tutorials and independent (guided and "free choice") study. Students will also benefit from insights and expertise shared by visiting speakers and from visits to a variety of locations

What you will study

There are four modules: two university-based modules prepare students for their ensuing Professional Practice placements in schools, where they will teach a range of classes. All four modules (2 university-based and 2 school-based) are compulsory. Students may opt in to an Elective and also participate in a range of Enhanced Learning opportunities, whereby their understanding of educational practice may be furthered, whilst undertaking the university-based modules.

Curricular Studies - The programme covers relevant aspects of Curriculum for Excellence(CfE). The programme develops students' understanding of how learners learn and explores strategies for effective teaching and learning.
Professional Studies - The programme will support and develop students’ awareness and understanding of: inter-agency working, working with parents, meeting the needs of all learners, assessment, classroom management and strategies for promoting a positive ethos for learning, including strategies to support positive behaviour management.
Educational Studies - Students are introduced to the History of Scottish Education, Comparative Education (education systems in other countries) and Learning Theory.
Professional Practice (Placement) - 18 weeks working with 11-18 year olds in two schools.

How you will be assessed

Formative assessment and summative assessment are used throughout the programme. There are two university-based assessed modules (one by essay, the other by ePortfolio) and two professional practice placement modules. Professional Practice (Placement) is assessed with reference to the Standard for Initial Teacher Education by university staff and school partners. Although this programme is at graduate entry, there are components (University-based) which are assessed at SCQF Level 10 and Level 11. Professional Placement is assessed only at SCQF Level 10.

Careers

All successful UK and EU participants are guaranteed one year’s employment in a Scottish primary school via the GTCS Teacher Induction Scheme.

The majority of our students go on to enjoy careers as subject teachers initially. Thereafter, they may apply for promoted posts within the management teams in schools, or as Principal Teachers/ Curriculum Leaders. Some choose to enter other fields, operating as Education Officers within museums etc. Others undertake further study, to become Educational Psychologists etc. It is also possible to pursue a wide range of further careers, e.g. within Education Scotland, as Advisors/Directors within Local Education Authorities, within GTCS or in Initial Teacher Education in universities.

Recent participants in this programme have gone on to secure permanent posts in a range of settings, both within Scotland and abroad e.g. in International Schools. Some are operating within promoted posts in schools; others have been seconded to Education Scotland or returned to academic life as lecturers.

"The large input on Curriculum for Excellence has been very useful in my career. As tough as it was to stomach at the time, I feel a step ahead of the game now, and I'm reaping the benefits."

Part A: Orientation studies
These studies provide an orientation to the field of Education. You will consider the nature of learning and the influences upon it, and the nature of teaching and teachers' work within the broader family and community context within which children's and young people's learning takes place.
