    Will only having English school experience be a barrier to getting onto a Scottish PGDE course?

    I've recently graduated from a Fine Art degree and I'm currently employed as a LSA in an english high school. I'm wanting to move to, and teach in Scotland so I'm planning to apply to do a PGDE in Glasgow or Strathclyde. However I have no experience of the scottish education system and I am worried this will affect my application.

    I shouldn't think the experience thing should be a problem.:nah:

    Probably worth reading up on how the Scottish education system operates though.:sadnod:
