Date of entry

September 2020

The number of students selected for Initial Teacher Education programmes in Scotland reflects anticipated national requirements, so employment prospects are excellent.

Graduates whose training is publicly funded (normally those based in Scotland or Europe) can apply for a salaried one-year induction post in Scotland (as part of the Scottish Teacher Induction Scheme). On successful completion of this year you will then be entitled to full registration with the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS).

Students paying overseas fees are not eligible to apply for the Scottish Teacher Induction Scheme. 

All our graduates can undertake the 'flexible route' to achieve full registration by the GTCS. Alternatively, graduates may work towards full registration abroad, provided that they work in an English-medium school.

Some graduates who do not go into teaching choose to study at postgraduate level, whilst others work in organisations including museums and charities.
