Moray House School of Education and Sport

Our students

Our teacher education students share some advice and reflect on their experiences on the PGDE programme at Moray House School of Education and Sport.

Emily Bell, PGDE Secondary (English)

'I chose to come to the University of Edinburgh because the programme offered me a 1-year degree with equal parts university-based coursework and practical experience teaching in schools.'

Isabel Braadbaart, PGDE Primary

'I know I will stay in touch with the friends I’ve made for a long time – not just because they are colleagues who share educational interests and values.'

Andrew Broadfoot, PGDE Secondary

'They know their subjects, they know how to teach us and teach pupils. And Edinburgh is a wonderful city.'

Lizzie McGhee, PGDE Secondary (Music)

'I feel I can be completely transparent about how I’m doing throughout the year, the highs and lows, and always receive a listening ear, encouragement and understanding.'

Tom Bird, PGDE Secondary (Physics and Mathematics)

'At Moray House, going to conferences and learning together has been especially rewarding. You are shown a world of possibilities for what teachers can do and be.'
