How do you provide an environment within which children feel safe and secure, and can develop their potential? How can I be challenged to develop my understanding of education? What are the best methods of structuring learning and teaching opportunities? How do you manage behaviour effectively and ensure all children in the classroom are included?
Stirling has long been distinctive amongst Scottish universities in offering concurrent courses to prospective primary school teachers. These degree courses enable you to graduate with both a degree and teaching qualification for primary education, whilst studying a subject at university level.
Another distinctive feature is you will become a specialist in one of the three areas' Modern Languages, the Environment or Early Years. Primary school teachers with this specialist knowledge have recently become highly sought-after.
Our concurrent degrees in primary education will appeal to students who wish to become more than a generic primary school teacher. The primary education degree will suit those who wish to study primary education alongside a specific subject or specialism (modern language, environmental science or early years). This means that primary education students will take the appropriate subject modules alongside education modules for the first five semesters of their programme. In the remaining three semesters of the degree students will study modules within education which draw upon their subject specialism.
