he PgDip TQPR is specifically for teachers working in Independent Schools in Scotland who currently do not possess a formal teaching qualification and are therefore not eligible for Full Registration with the General Teaching Council of Scotland (GTCS). The programme has been co-designed with the Scottish Council for Independent Schools (SCIS) to offer a contextualised route for teaching staff in Independent Schools in Scotland, to enable them to achieve a GTCS-accredited Initial Teacher Education award, which meets the conditions outlined by GTCS in response to their application for Full Registration.

This new programme is contemporary in structure and aims to develop and enhance classroom practice while equipping participants with an enquiring stance in education. It promotes collaborative engagement and enables participants to engage in relevant, professional learning over 2 years on a part-time, on-line basis which takes cognisance of the current and future demands on those in the teaching profession.
