Hi,
I'm Scottish and considering studying undergraduate primary education in England, however I would like to move back to Scotland after qualifying. Does anyone have any experience of doing this and could share if its easy to make the move?
I know England have a 3 year degree but Scotland has 4, so does it make a difference?
Also, does England have the equivalent of a probationary year after graduating?

Thanks

Hiya.

Lots of Primary Education BA courses in England are 4 years and come with QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) which means that a PGDE wouldn't be needed - assuming this is what you mean by a probationary year.

Some Primary Ed courses do not come with QTS though so be careful - these are more likely to be the 3 year courses too.

Hope this helps.

There used to be a rule that you had to study the teaching qualification in Scotland to teach there; has that been changed?

I’ve been looking into Leeds Beckett uni, and the course is titled primary education with recommendation for QTS and it’s a 3 year course. However I’m unsure if that means I’d be fully qualified to teach or I’d need to a probation/induction year following this.

I thought that too that you had to study where you want to work, but many have said teaching qualifications are transferable.

Email them and ask.

The info you need will be on the GTCS website.
The requirements vary as to which qualification you get and whether or not you’ll be registered with a professional body.


If you currently live in Scotland and want to teach in Scotland you’re best doing your teacher training in Scotland as you’ll have no fees to repay and the courses are geared to the Scottish education system.

If you live elsewhere in the U.K. you may be better moving to Scotland and getting a PSA position for a couple of years then going to Uni here. You’ll then qualify for free tuition and have lots of relevant experience.
