West Lothian College’s childhood practice team has just secured the first agreement of all colleges in Scotland for direct progression into Queen Margaret University’s brand new BA (Hons) Education Studies (Primary) degree.
The agreement will see those students starting the HNC in Childhood Practice this year able to progress directly into second year of the teaching degree at the Edinburgh based university on successful completion of their course.
This arrangement is the most recent in a range of articulation agreements between the college and universities across Scotland. The agreements cover a range of subject areas and help to ensure that students choosing to begin their studies at college are not subject to duplicate years in education.
Claire Glen, Head of Childhood Practice at West Lothian College said: “The team and I are delighted to have secured this agreement with Queen Margaret University for our childhood practice students. This agreement is a reflection of the quality of our courses, teaching and students, and it is great to be the only Scottish college able to offer our students this opportunity.”
