If you have ever considered a career in teaching, now is your chance to find out more by attending the Scottish Government's 'Teaching Makes People' roadshow, which will be in Aberdeen in the foyer of the Sir Duncan Rice Library at the University of Aberdeen on 25th February, between 10am - 2.30pm.
The roadshow is touring across Scotland as part of an ongoing, nation-wide recruitment campaign.
Visiting undergraduate students will get the chance to speak to current teachers about their own experiences, get information on applying to the Professional Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) course, and find out all they need to know about pursuing a career in teaching.
Teaching is an incredibly rewarding career, which allows you to share your own passion for your subject of study and help to make a difference in the education of young people. In return you will enjoy a solid pathway for career progression and professional development, a generous holiday entitlement, and a competitive salary.
John Swinney, Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills said:
“Teaching is an inspiring career that allows graduates to flex their creativity and autonomy while enhancing the lives of children and young people by bringing education to life. However, it is often overlooked as a career choice by undergraduates completing their courses at Scottish universities each year, many of whom may not immediately think they have the skills for the role.
“This campaign aims to encourage more people studying or working in related areas to think again and consider a challenging and rewarding career in teaching where they can make a positive difference.”
