The St Andrew’s Foundation for Catholic Teacher Education is being established in the University of Glasgow to support the University’s mission to Catholic teacher education in Scotland. It is a venture which carries great significance for both initial teacher education and the on-going professional development of teachers in Catholic schools. It is hoped that the Catholic education community will gives its full support to the on-going development of the Foundation.
The University of Glasgow and the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland have arranged two events to mark the launch of the St Andrew’s Foundation. These are designed to reflect the unique form of partnership between the Church and the University in the delivery and support of teachers for Catholic schools in Scotland. The events will also mark the work of the former Catholic Teacher education establishments and the contributions of Catholic teachers over many generations. So it will be fitting to see, among those attending these events, many who have worked in Catholic schools and Catholic teacher training colleges, as well as those currently working in Catholic schools.
Friday 14th June 2013, 7pm Thanksgiving Mass for all involved in Education will be celebrated in St Andrew’s Cathedral, Glasgow and followed by a civic reception in the Briggait.
