Why this course?

Studying on the PGDE (Secondary) Gaelic course is a rewarding and absorbing experience. As a teacher of Gaelic, you’ll be responsible for educating and engaging the next generation as they develop their skills and fluency in Gaelic. Successful completion of this course will qualify students to enter into the Gaelic teaching profession, where there is currently a shortage of skilled teachers.

Worldwide qualification

This course is a professional training course which qualifies you to teach secondary education. The qualification is recognised throughout the world and is regulated by:

  • the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS)
  • the Scottish Government.

What you'll learn

This course will equip you with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills you require.

While on campus you'll attend two general teaching classes:

  • Educational Perspectives & Policies
  • Principles, Policies & Practice

Educational Perspectives and Policies will develop your understanding of educational issues in a broader intellectual context while Principles and Policy in Practice is the companion module to Educational Perspective and Policies. It shares a focus on critical professional engagement informed by educational research and theory. Tutorials for both classes provide the opportunity to work with students from different subjects and from within the primary sector.

Subject specific classes are known as Creative Contexts for Learning (CCL). Here, you’ll learn about pedagogical approaches specific to Gaelic with a highly experienced tutor.

The course also has links with several leading professionals in the world of Gaelic teaching, who deliver school-related aspects for the course. This time is used to familiarise you with the curriculum, allow you to collaborate with students and begin to plan lessons, develop materials, teach mini-lessons and to learn innovative and motivating ways to deliver the curriculum effectively.

You'll also complete a Professional Specialism (PS) module which can be self-directed or comprised of on-campus classes which aims to allow you to develop your knowledge in an educational area of particular interest.


A degree in education will equip you for a range of careers working with children and young people.

Most of our PGDE graduates go on to work as teachers in secondary schools across the country.

Secondary School Teachers in Scotland use the Curriculum for Excellence framework. They work with their class to develop skills and abilities, and encourage the pupils to expand their knowledge and understanding further.
