Secondary Education (Home Economics) PGDE
School of Education and Social Work
Prepare to teach Home Economics in the secondary school sector, and explore learning and teaching in theory and practice
Dundee City Campus
This course is the first stage you need to complete if you are following the traditional route into secondary education. It covers the Initial Teacher Education phase of your career. When followed by a successful induction year working within a school (Teaching Induction Scheme), you will be qualified to teach Home Economics throughout Scotland.
Through two on-campus study modules combined with three school placements, you will gain vital classroom skills and experience. You will explore aspects of theory for teaching Home Economics to children and young adults. We will also teach you how to effectively support literacy, numeracy, health and well-being.
Small class sizes mean you will benefit from a strong supportive community of staff and students. You will receive individual support throughout the course from an allocated tutor, who will also visit and assess you on each of your placements. Additionally you will be allocated a mentor from within the schools you are working in.
You may be eligible to receive a Scottish Government bursary worth up to £20,000. These bursaries are for people looking to change careers and become secondary school teachers in certain STEM subjects.
