Do you want to get into teaching? Consider applying to the University of Strathclyde, which has a strong track record in educating students as well as teaching degrees which are highly valued. Graduates from Strathclyde are sought after by schools around the world. The University has a long history including a milestone in 1837 which occurred in the field of education, when David Stow founded one of the first teacher education institutions in the UK.
Canada is predicting a severe teaching shortage which could begin as soon as 2020, especially in areas on the East Coast such as New Brunswick so indications are that the job market in this area looks very promising. The Professional Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) is the graduate entry route to those who want to become a Primary or Secondary teacher in Scotland. However, opportunities are not only restricted to Scotland. Applicants should note that the PGDE is an internationally recognised qualification and newly qualified teachers will be able to apply for qualified teacher status (QTS) or equivalent in their home country.
Please note that anyone applying from Canada should contact Barclay Educational Assistance for free help with the application. (The school pays our fee for assisting students.) If you are interested in applying or would like more information, please contact Jackie at JSB@barclayedu.com
