Abstract

This paper outlines the development of an innovative teacher education programme, consisting of a four year master’s course in primary education with qualified teacher status at the University of Glasgow. The origins of the course and underpinning principles are explained, as well as its progress over the first six years, including successes and problems. It is argued that this programme, which combines in-depth curriculum study, first-hand research and intensive professional development through practical experience, meets the principles of Teachers for a New Era and the recommendations of the Donaldson Report, as well as preparing teachers to meet the demands of A Curriculum for Excellence.
