Ready! Steady! Teach! in Dumfries and Galloway

Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Education Service welcomed its new cohort of probationer teachers for 2 days of induction training prior to the start of the new term.

97 new teachers joined Education Services, a record for the region.

A key part of the trainee induction scheme was a 2-day session held at Castle Douglas High School.

A programme of workshops and seminars eased the induction process for the new teachers, who are now out teaching in classes across the region.

Councillor Jeff Leaver, chair of the Children, Young People and Lifelong Learning [CYPLL] committee, and Councillor Ros Surtees, vice chair, said: “Providing the best start in life for all our children is a priority of our Council. Recruiting our highest ever number of probationer teachers is a clear sign that we mean what we say. This is a significant step for education in Dumfries and Galloway. We wholeheartedly welcome them to the Council and wish them all the best for rewarding careers that will have a positive impact on thousands of young people in the coming years.”
