About the programme

Teachers in pre-5 and primary education play a key and important role in ensuring children have the best start possible, enabling them to lead successful, happy, productive and balanced lives.

The one-year PGDE (Primary) programme utilises our state-of-theart ICT labs and dedicated teaching rooms. We use our virtual learning environment and Glow, the education network, for delivery and assessment. Workshops, outdoor experiences and learning strategies make this a vibrant learning experience.

99% of students are in work or further study six months after graduating (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, 2015).

Practical experience

Eighteen weeks of school experience placements occur in at least two schools. Assessment is based on GTCS standards.

Your learning

Module one introduces the broad range of subjects that underpin the primary curriculum (Curriculum for Excellence) with a focus on mathematics and literacy.

Module two develops teaching skills at pre-5 and all stages of primary. Workshops focus on core skills in classroom management, planning, teaching, assessment and evaluation strategies, and behaviour management.

Module three, jointly delivered with PGDE (Secondary) students, explores contemporary issues in Scottish education. This module is offered at both SCQF levels 10 and 11, giving the option of 40 credits of internationally recognised Masters level study.

You can also undertake an additional 20-credit module at Masters level.

Our Careers Adviser says

Most UWS graduates remain in mainstream teaching in the UK or abroad. Others work in specialist educational areas including working with children with additional learning support needs, adult training, museums, writing and publishing, health education, curriculum development, and social services.

This Masters in Education (MEd) is a professional qualification, offered in flexible mode, for those who teach, or plan to teach English to speakers of other languages within the school, college or university contexts.

About the programme

The programme is offered on a full-time basis to home and international students at Paisley Campus. It is also available to home students on a flexible, blended learning basis, with some attendance at Paisley Campus. It is aimed at those who intend to work as TESOL professionals, teaching English at home or abroad.

Students will be equipped with the relevant, practical teaching and English language skills as well as the confidence and citizenship skills gained from developing language learnt in situ. You will be supported, throughout, in considering the role of language in a global context and the associated benefits for citizens, nationally and internationally, as developing linguists; that is, how to enhance both their own prospects and those of their prospective students in a global context.

There will be opportunities for practice-related learning for all students: this will comprise the opportunity to use practical knowledge of language and teaching pedagogy gained from the programme on a short teaching practice within the field of TESOL.

Your learning

The MEd TESOL comprises six modules and a dissertation:

• Critical Self-Evaluation and Development
• Theory and Practice of English Language Teaching
• Research Methods
• Theories of Second Language Acquisition

You will begin with the compulsory ‘Critical Self-Evaluation and Development’ and ‘Theory and Practice of English Language Teaching’ modules. You will also choose one of the modules below to complete the Certificate; and another of the modules below plus ‘Research Methods’ and ‘Theories of Second Language Acquisition’ modules to complete the Diploma:

• Applied Linguistics
• English as a Global Language
• Intercultural Theory and Global Citizenship
• Language, Identity and Power
• Working with Young Learners

You will then complete a dissertation, the title of which is to be agreed with the Programme Leader.

Our Careers Adviser says

Employment opportunities for teachers who hold a first degree and a Masters in TESOL are excellent: this qualification is a requirement for many TESOL jobs within the UK and internationally. The professional skills acquired and developed during this programme are highly regarded by employers globally.

First-class facilities

You’ll have access to a wide range of technology to facilitate your learning. Our libraries are stocked with a vast range of specialist resources to help you in your studies, and you’ll also have access to our extensive electronic library collection (including e-books and academic journals) and the virtual learning environment, Moodle.
