Promoting equity and acknowledging difference have long been significant educational aims, but are now at the forefront of the Scottish Government’s education policy agenda. As such, we are delighted to offer 10 fully funded places for Scottish teachers on our part-time Postgraduate Diploma in Promoting Equity, which explores equity in education, its theory, principles and practices. Please note that you must be permanently employed as a teacher and fully registered with the GTCS to apply for this programme.

  • Number of awards: 10
  • Help with: Fully funded places on a two-year part-time Postgraduate Diploma in Promoting Equity
  • Deadline: 8th June 2018

The funded places are available in 2018, with induction to the course in August.

Our work with students on this diploma will be part of a new research project linked to the Scottish Government’s Attainment Challenge – you could be part of what shapes education thinking around current challenges facing contemporary education in Scotland.

The focus on Promoting Equity is designed to equip teachers with critical thinking and practices that foster innovative pedagogy and provide an opportunity to undertake professional enquiry in a relevant area. This focus is relevant for all teachers (across subjects and sectors) but will be of particular interest to teachers of religious and moral education; teachers of religious, moral and philosophical education; and/or teachers who work with pupils facing significant socio-economic contexts.

The Postgraduate Diploma comprises the following modules, delivered part-time over two years:

Year 1

  • Engaging Critically with Professional Practices
  • Promoting Equity: Theory, Principles and Critique

Year 2

  • Examining Professional Practices: Work-based Learning
  • Promoting Equity: In Educational Practice

The modules are delivered face-to-face and online. Face-to-face seminars take place on Saturdays, 9.00am -3.30pm at the University of Stirling campus.

As this Postgraduate Diploma constitutes part of the MSc Professional Education and Leadership, you will have the opportunity to undertake a full Masters degree through successful completion of year three of the course.

Please note: this course is subject to approval
