Education at University of Dundee - UCAS

Course summary

Teaching is a rewarding job and requires a variety of professional skills. This course gives you a qualification in primary education, leading to provisional registration with the General Teaching Council for Scotland. There are periods of professional practice placements throughout the course, giving you experience in a range of different settings including nursery/early years (ages 3-7) and middle/upper stages (ages 8-12). This helps you to apply theory to practice from an early stage in your studies. In Level 2 you will also participate in a Learning from Life placement, which takes place in an educational setting that is not a Scottish primary school, such as an educational charity or museum for example. Increasingly teachers are required to work with a variety of people and services to support children. We prepare you for this by giving you the experience of working and collaborating with our Community Education and Social Work students in your first year, sharing interactive learning together.
