The MA(Honours) Education has evolved from the recommendations of the recently published Donaldson Review, 'Teaching Scotland's Future', which builds on the findings of two national research and project projects, awarded to the School of Education at Aberdeen, Scottish Teachers for a New Era and the Inclusive Practice Project.
The Donaldson Review has inititated change to all Initial Teacher Education provision across Scotland, much of which is in line with researched approaches taken at Aberdeen.
Through the programme, beginner teachers are encouraged to recognise that learning begins at birth and is sustained and nurtured in the home, and across every environment with which the child comes into contact. Students will develop the knowledge, understanding, skills and values required to prepare them for the challenges facing the profession in the 21st century.
This four year degree programme combines academic study with practical inquiry in a variety of school settings and their communities. Successful completion enables students to teach children in the 3-12 age range. The achievement of the Standard for Registration (SR) enables students to register with the General Teaching Council for Scotland.
