Course content

This Professional Graduate Diploma in Education is for graduates wishing to enter the teaching profession in Scotland at secondary level.

The one-year programme is the Scottish route to qualified teacher status. We aim to prepare you for the range of roles that teachers are expected to play: a competent, reflective classroom practitioner; a collaborator who contributes to the wider informal curriculum of the school; a subject specialist and curriculum developer; and a teacher in society, whether building strong relationships with parents or contributing to national policy debates.

The 36-week secondary programme is divided equally between University- based and school-based activities.

The programme is designed to prepare you for the range of roles that teachers are expected to play:

  • a competent, reflective classroom practitioner
  • a collaborator who contributes to the wider informal curriculum of the school
  • a subject specialist and a curriculum developer
  • a teacher in society, whether building strong relationships with parents or contributing to national policy debates

We currently offer our secondary programme in the following subjects:

  • art and design
  • biology
  • chemistry
  • design and technology
  • drama
  • English
  • geography
  • history
  • mathematics
  • modern foreign languages (Chinese, French, German)
  • music
  • physical education
  • physics

Programme structure

This 36-week programme, starting in late August, is divided into three blocks, of 16 weeks, 11 weeks and nine weeks. Each block contains an equal balance between University-based and school-based activities.

Campus activities will include lectures and workshops, with a focus on student-centred learning in a multidisciplinary setting. School activities will include observation and analysis of teaching and learning, through to developing and implementing your own teaching practice.
