This course will prepare you for life as a primary teacher, with the skills and knowledge, to influence the lives of children you teach. The PGDE consists of 18 weeks study at the university, plus 19 weeks in professional practice in schools. The placements in schools are arranged nationally and you will be placed in schools within travelling distance of your home or term-time address. You will be able to choose from two pathways, English and Gaelic. If you wish to apply for the Gaelic pathway you must be a fluent Gaelic speaker, your language proficiency will be assessed at interview. On this pathway, parts of the course are delivered through the medium of Gaelic and you will complete the majority of your school practice in a Gaelic setting. Graduates of the course will hold provisional registration as a primary teacher with the General Teaching Council for Scotland. Further information about studying on our PGDE programmes.
