Team Scotland

University of Aberdeen, School of Education

One of the oldest universities in Scotland, the University of Aberdeen is today at the forefront of teaching, learning and discovery. The 'global university of the north' has an international outlook and a commitment to excellence in teaching and research. Following curriculum Reform in 2010, all programmes must now demonstrate how they support graduates to leave the University with enhanced skills as critical thinkers and effective communicators, better prepared to be active citizens. The university is fully committed to equality for all its staff and students.

The School of Education seeks to contribute to the development of a world class education system in Scotland through excellence in teaching, and research which informs policy and practice. The work of the School of Education is centred on the career and lifelong learning of educators and related professionals and includes a wide range of undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees in education. The school is at the forefront of the use of emergent communication technologies for interactive and distance learning. The staff team work closely together to bring congruent educational philosophies and distinctive pedagogic approaches to professional development programmes for educators in all sectors, including early years, school, post-compulsory school and community education.
