Want to become a secondary teacher?

The Highland Council is working with the University of Dundee and the University of the Highlands and Islands to support Highland-based people who are interested in a career move to gain both their PGDE and complete their induction year within 18 months. This can be achieved through the new “PGDE Secondary (STEM) Partnership Induction Model (PIM) Programme” which starts in December 2018 and completes in June 2020.

An Information Evening about this exciting new Programme will be held on Tuesday 12 June 2018 from 5.30 – 7 pm at the University of Highlands and Islands, Inverness College, Inverness Campus IV2 5NA.

This is for you if you:

  • Are interested in a career change to become a Secondary School Teacher.
