Course summary

The University of Stirling and Forth Valley College have teamed up to offer a secondary education course in chemistry teaching. You could become a science teacher and inspire the next generation of young scientists. Our chemistry teaching course allows you to study science to HND level at college before coming to Stirling to learn how to teach chemistry. We work in close partnership with local authorities, schools, Education Scotland and the General Teaching Council for Scotland to ensure that you are supported throughout your studies to become the best teacher you can be.
