The School of Divinity is committed to offering support for the teaching of Religious and Moral Education (RME) / Religious, Moral, & Philosophical Studies (RMPS) in Scottish schools. We run a series of visit-days for pupils and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events for teachers, in which colleagues share their expertise in accessible formats relevant to the Scottish curriculum. We are also developing free resources for use in schools, and these can be accessed below. 

If you are a teacher of RME/RMPS in the region and interested in staying up to date with our schools outreach events and activities, please sign up for our news and events for teachers.

Individual queries and requests for school visits can also be addressed to the Schools Outreach Officer, Dr Linden Bicket.
