Following the successful completion of the Rural Learn to Teach programme, eighteen new probationer teachers celebrated their achievement at a civic reception, hosted by Highland Council, in Inverness on Saturday 30th November.

Rural Learn to Teach programme is an innovative route into primary teaching. It is funded by the Scottish Government, delivered in partnership by University of Dundee and the University of Highlands and Islands, and is fully supported by Highland Council.

This is the first cohort to complete the programme, which allows students to continue in their full time employment whilst engaging in their studies. Highland Council praised the initiative and welcomed the new teachers into the profession.

Nicky Grant Interim Head of Education said: "We welcome our new Highland colleagues into the teaching profession and wish them all the best in their chosen careers. We extend a sincere congratulations to all. Our future is bright in Highland "
