This Professional Graduate Diploma in Education is for graduates wishing to enter the teaching profession in Scotland at primary level. The one-year programme is the Scottish route to qualified teacher status. We aim to produce successful, reflective teachers, sensitive to the demands of pupils, responsive to changes within the education system and committed to their own continuing professional development. The 36-week primary programme is an intensive programme of study, half of which is spent in placement schools, with the other half spent studying on campus. Your learning follows the chronological sequence of pupil development – the focus is initially on early years, moving to the middle primary and then upper primary years.
