South Lanarkshire Council schools have undergone an £800m+ modernisation programme. We have invested significantly in modernising school buildings and this project is believed to be the largest and most progressive in the UK.
If you want to teach in modern schools which are suited to delivering a 21st century curriculum we are looking for you to join us. We are the fifth largest local authority in Scotland and we want to harness the passion and commitment that you have for teaching – so why not come and join us.
You will assist in the delivery of the curriculum and contribute to whole school initiatives, as appropriate and will carry out the range of duties outlined in Annexe B of "A Teaching Profession for the 21st Century".
It is a legal requirement for any teacher teaching in a Scottish state school to be registered with GTC Scotland, General Teaching Council (Scotland) Registration.
