Producing reflective and competent teachers, sensitive to the demands of the pupils and the job.
Teach STEM Edinburgh event - Friday 24 May 16:00-19:30
A one-year programme beginning mid-August
The 36-week Professional Graduate Diploma in Education - PGDE (Secondary) - programme is divided equally between University-taught courses and school placement courses. The programme is therefore designed to prepare students for the range of roles that teachers are expected to play: a reflective classroom practitioner; a collaborator who contributes to the wider formal and informal curriculum of the school through interdisciplinary learning and through extracurricular activities; a subject specialist and a curriculum developer; a teacher in society, whether building strong relationships with parents or contributing to national policy debates; and a teacher who has the capacity for leadership.
