University of Edinburgh
Students' placement experiences will cover 3 school settings: early years, middle primary and upper primary; each placement is preceded by study on a school-stage-related course at the University; each unit of study comprises 2 courses, 1 on preparation for teaching, the other a school placement course; in addition, students undertake extensive reading; the courses involve learning in the domains of educational theory and practice, ensuring that students are well prepared to take on the professional role of a student teacher on placement; there is an emphasis on the development of collaborative working skills in problem-based learning contexts.
A UK university degree, 2.1 preferred, or its international equivalent, in the subject to be taught and containing at least 2 graduating courses in the relevant subject; plus SQA Higher Grades at levels A, B or C (or equivalent) in English and SQA Standard Grades level 1 or 2 (or equivalent) in mathematics; applicants are also expected to have experience working with children in an employment or volunteering capacity and an ability to reflect thoughtfully on that experience; evidence of sustained personal interests relevant to the primary school curriculum is desirable.
