Student Profile(s)

Emily

The balance of theory and practice – with placements in local primary schools alongside taught modules in college and some distance learning - allows students to build up their teaching experience while undertaking the core learning. There is a strong focus on independent study, with an emphasis on encouraging students to develop their own areas of interest and identify their strengths and areas for development from a very early stage.
Learning is linked to the Standard for Provisional Registration with the General Teaching Council for Scotland and students are encouraged from the outset to develop and extend their learning in line with these standards. This very much reflects the teaching year that newly qualified graduates carry out on completion of their course.
As Emily wanted to continue working and living in Moray, location was an important factor in her choosing the course. She is now undertaking her probationary year as a newly qualified teacher at Burghead Primary School.
