Moray House School of Education and Sport

Career opportunities

Moray House has its own library and staff who can help you find the information you need throughout your studies.

Graduates are eligible for employment in a wide range of settings in the UK and beyond.

Local authorities in Scotland and across the UK recruit graduates for a variety of roles in their Community Learning, Youth Services and related departments.

Local and national voluntary sector organisations also employ Community Learning and Development practitioners in a wide variety of education and development roles. As do national and international NGOs.

Typically, our graduates will go on to work with young people, adults and communities in generic or specialist settings such as:

  • Youth work in communities, schools or criminal justice
  • Community development
  • Community capacity building
  • Community engagement and inclusion
  • Community health and housing
  • Adult literacy and lifelong learning
  • Citizenship and democracy

In whichever setting they engage, our graduates bring a clear professional identity and a practice grounded in the theory and practice of community-based informal education.
