The School of Education places emphasis on cooperative and collaborative thinking, learning and working in professional contexts.  Our partnership activity for Teacher Education focuses on the continuum from Initial Teacher Education - Early Phase to Career-Long Professional Learning, including Master's level enquiry.  Our goal is to ensure that all our partnerships are based on values such as mutual respect, trust and recognition of each other's skills and knowledge.

The School has well established partnerships with Local Auhtorities including:

  • Aberdeen City
  • Aberdeenshire
  • Dundee
  • Fife
  • Highland
  • Moray
  • Orkney and Shetland Islands

The School of Education, in collaboration with Local Authority Placement Coordinators, use the National Student Placement System (SPS), managed by the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS), to organise placements for all ITE students across these Local Authorities.
