Subject

Secondary teaching

The Food, Nutrition and Textiles Education degree is aimed at those wishing to pursue a career as a home economics teacher in a secondary school. This is a first for teacher education in Scotland, supported by the Scottish government, to train new home economics teachers. This contemporary programme is unique in Scotland, as it combines academic study in food, nutrition, textiles and education with vocational training as a teacher in secondary schools within the four year programme of study.

The programme has two pathways.
- Full four-year honour degree

- HNC Professional Cookery route into year two of the degree. Students from this group who do not have Higher English and National 5 Maths, will be supported to complete equivalent qualifications during their HNC year.
