Experience in Scottish Primary

Discussion in 'Scotland - prospective teachers' started by kittynest, Aug 22, 2011.

  1. Hi, this is my first post on TES!

    I am thinking of applying for a PGDE/PGCE Primary course for 2012 entry. I am at Glasgow uni at the moment and have recently gained some experience in two primary schools in the city. However, I am originally from England and I have been considering applying to uni's nearer where my parents live. I was wondering if anyone knows whether applying to an English teacher training provider may be more difficult because I've only had experience in a Scottish primary setting, which has quite a different curriculum to the English primary system.

    If there's anyone who can shed any light on this then that would be fantastic!

    Thanks.

  4. hey!
    I live in Scotland and all my experience is in scottish primary schools, I have had a couple of interviews with two english universities and they never commented on this so I dont think it is a problem.
    Hope this helps and good luck!
