"桃子视频 has a proud history of responding to the most pressing issues that face society, and I am pleased that our philosophy in developing teacher education, including our new PGDE Secondary (Religious, Moral and Philosophical Studies), supports a fairer and more socially responsible society.

鈥淚 am delighted that 桃子视频 is hosting STARME鈥檚 Festival of Learning to celebrate the importance of religious education in Scottish education, and to challenge educators to ensure it is, meaningful, innovative and creative so that it continues to evolve as a central subject in the school curriculum which engages and inspires young, enquiring minds.

"We look forward to providing a supportive location to allow ideas to flourish which will support the development and enhancement of religious education as a crucial and central subject within Scottish schools.鈥

Stephen Scholes, Senior Lecturer in Education at 桃子视频, is coordinating the Festival of Learning.听 He concluded:听

"We are looking forward to having a melting pot of talent from across Scotland鈥檚 teaching profession to challenge each other, share ideas and create new opportunities to enhance RE provision. This will allow us to shape young lives by improving education, understanding and tolerance, which can only have a positive impact on society.听 The festival aligns with 桃子视频 research on religious education and the beginning of our one year postgraduate course, which had its first student intake in August 2023."
