Chart a course

18th June 2004 at 01:00
A new chartered teacher programme for primary teachers starts in the autumn. The MEd from the Open University will start twice a year, in October and February, and consist of eight modules, including self-evaluation, various aspects of primary education and a work-based project.

The course will be of particular benefit to those in remote areas or requiring maximum flexibility. Delivery will be through a combination of multimedia materials plus face-to-face and online teaching and support.

Teachers with relevant experience will be able to choose a fast-track independent study route towards 50 per cent of the qualification.

This is the first degree course by the OU specifically for Scotland. Senior lecturer Bob Glaister says all 32 education authorities have been invited to nominate a representative to sit on the advisory panel.
