University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI)


In 2013, the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) launched a new PGDE course offering students  the opportunity to train as primary teachers in various locations within the UHI network.

The PGDE for Gaelic-medium Primary teaching is currently available at:

  • Lews Castle College, Isle of Lewis
  • Inverness College

All applications should be made through the UCAS teacher training website. The application process usually opens in November and as places on the PGDE Primary programmes are limited, the sooner you apply the better your chance of being considered.

UHI are hoping to expand their PGDE programme offering it at Argyll College in Oban and Ionad Chaluim Chille Ìle in Islay from August 2015.
