Teach STEM offers attendees the opportunity to hear from current students and teachers about what it is really like to study for a Professional Graduate Diploma in Education and to work as a teacher in STEM related subjects. The event is open to current undergraduate students considering a career in secondary teaching.
Academic staff will also be on hand to provide an overview of the Secondary PGDE programmes and admissions staff will talk through the application process. The evening will end with an informal networking opportunity over some refreshments.
As part of the event we will also offer to arrange schools shadowing experiences for attendees in local Edinburgh and West Lothian schools. This will allow interested applicants a chance to shadow a teacher in a classroom for a morning/afternoon.
