Highland Council receives encouraging response to promoted teacher recruitment campaign across Highland

The Highland Council is encouraged by the excellent response to the advertising campaign that took place during the first week of the school session for promoted teaching staff.

Strategic Chair of the Education and Learning Committee, Cllr John Finlayson, said: “I am delighted at the excellent response this campaign has produced, including over 13 applications being received for one Head Teacher post and over 20 for one Depute Head Teacher post. This response shows that applicants view Highland as a positive place to come to live and work and we are confident that this will lead to high quality appointments being made to these posts”.

A high level of applications across all categories of post have been received. Adverts for 13 Head Teacher posts, 4 Depute Head Teacher posts and 5 Principal Teacher posts across the 4 Highland Council areas were placed on ‘myjobscotland’ as well in The Times Educational Supplement both in print and on-line.

Additionally, the posts were boosted on our social media platforms which accumulated a total number of 3755 post engagements including post shares, comments, and link clicks directing an individual to the recruitment page.
