Teaching can vary from working with a small group of primary 5's in a rural school, to coming face to face with a class of secondary pupils in a large urban secondary school. Either way it can be very rewarding.
Teaching in Scotland is an all graduate profession. There are nine universities offering programmes of initial teacher education.
