Funding Boost for more Trainee Teachers

The Scottish government is making more than £2m available to train an extra 260 teachers. More places will also be made available at all of Scotland's teacher education universities.

A campaign was launched in September to try to encourage more people to enter the teaching profession in Scotland. The Scottish government's #inspiringteachers campaign is focusing on science, technology, engineering and maths.

Student teacher places:

  • 1,230 post-graduate primary places - 60 more than last year's target
  • 710 undergraduate primary places
  • 1,350 secondary places - up by 185 on last year's target
  • 200 undergraduate secondary places - 15 more than last year's target
