Consultation on entry requirements

We are currently consulting on proposed changes to the Memorandum on Entry Requirements to programmes of Initial Teacher Education in Scotland.

The Memorandum sets the minimum entry requirement for students’ entry to ITE programmes in Scotland.

We are proposing limited changes to the Memorandum to ensure: 

  • the Memorandum remains relevant and fit for purpose
  • the content of the Memorandum is sufficiently comprehensive and clear to all stakeholders
  • that ITE applicants can use the Memorandum confidently to determine whether they meet with the minimum entry requirements when applying to join an ITE programme; and 
  • ITE providers can provide up to date information in their literature to guide potential applicants on the expectations of the minimum entry requirements for ITE programmes. 

Find the consultation documents and how to respond on our consultation page.
