Additional Teaching Qualification in Religious Education for Catholic Schools (ATQRE for Catholic Schools)
ATQRE for Catholic Schools consists of 2 x 40 Credits (Level 10) courses that are recognised by the General Teaching Council of Scotland (GTCS) and which can be used to apply for Professional Recognition in the subject. The courses are taught by staff of the St Andrew's Foundation for Catholic Teacher Education at the University of Glasgow. The ATQRE programme is for qualified teachers who wish to become specialist RE teachers in the Secondary school.
Please Note: The Bishops' Conference of Scotland state that any religious education posts in Catholic schools in Scotland are to be filled by practising Catholics.
