The University of Glasgow are holding their annual workshops for pupils interested in teaching within Catholic education on Monday 3 December and Thursday 6 December. They have held this workshop for the past few years. They are holding it over two days again in anticipation of a high level of interest, as in previous years.
The workshop is aimed at S5 or S6 pupils interested in pursuing an undergraduate degree in Education and considering teaching within Catholic education. As you may know the University of Glasgow offers the Catholic Teacher’s Certificate in Religious Education (CTC) as an optional part of the undergraduate degrees in Education.
The CTC is mandatory for anyone wishing to teach within a Catholic school.
The workshop aims to give pupils a comprehensive overview of the CTC and an opportunity to speak to members of the academic staff. The day will also include a mass for anyone who wishes to take part and an alternative information session for those who do not. Lunch will also be provided for all those attending.
The workshop will take place in the Turnbull Hall in the University of Glasgow Catholic Chaplaincy, which is located on 13-15 Southpark Terrace and can be found on the Campus Map attached (Building E11). Pupils are asked to report to the Turnbull Hall by 9:45am and will be finished by 14:30. The workshop will run on Monday 3 December and Thursday 6 December. The maximum capacity for both days is 70 and places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
GU will contact schools which participate within the Access to a Career in Teaching or Access to a Career in Education Programmes, but this workshop is open to any pupils in any schools within South Lanarkshire Local Authority.
Any pupil interested in attending should give their names to Mr McCarthy ASAP. Closing date for submission is Thursday 15 November.
