Perth & Kinross Council’s schools consistently perform above the national average for pupil attainment and receive positive inspection reports. The Council has invested heavily in new school buildings and facilities in recent years. Our schools work together innovatively to embrace new technology, for example with the Perth City Campus initiative.
The Council’s Education and Child Social Care departments are jointly managed at Director level and we have long advocated early intervention and support in children’s earliest years to improve long-term outcomes. The Council is also committed to ensuring positive outcomes for school leavers, with investment in Modern Apprenticeships and our innovative Careers Academy, increased opportunities for work experience and paid internships.
The Council is fully committed to investing in its staff, providing inductions, ongoing training and support with a view to retaining talented staff through succession planning. Perth & Kinross Council is piloting the new Professional Update approach to continuous professional development for teachers. We encourage staff to widen their horizons and make connections across the organisation, supporting their own and the Council’s development.
