An education in Mechanical Engineering would be preferable. I would advise them to get as much diverse work experiences as possible, even if these jobs are not engineering related.

Graduates reflect on their time in St Patricks College Drumcondra



Courses related to this video..

 

This course, taught by internationally recognised experts in primary education, will enable graduates to register as primary teachers with the Teaching Council of Ireland.


Our BEd is designed to help you become a skilled and creative teacher. All students study Education modules, do 30 weeks School Placement and visit the Gaeltacht for four weeks. You will also study specialisms relevant to teaching. You’ll be part of a small study group (a tutorial group) and this will give you a chance to share your experiences of school placement and your thoughts on course content.

You will cover the basics needed for teaching in Years 1 and 2. In Year 3, you will review what you have learned to date and will apply it in different situations. Year 4 focuses on deepening your expertise and developing your research skills.

Students spend time in schools in each year, with extended full-semester placements in each of Years 3 and 4. You will start by observing the class teacher and will build up gradually to teaching all day. Throughout your placements, you will be supported by both faculty and school staff.

In Year One students take three Foundations in Humanities and Science modules from English, French, Gaeilge, Geography, History, Mathematics, Music, Religious Studies and Science. You can continue with one of these as a Major Specialism in Years Two to Four, or may decide to opt for Early Childhood Education, Human Development, Physical Education or Special and Inclusive Education.

BEd students can take an additional optional qualification, Certificate in Religious Studies, and modules in Primary Religious Education in each of Years Two, Three and Four.
