Lews Castle could become the first FE college in Scotland to offer teacher training. In a link-up with Jordanhill, the college is to introduce a postgraduate primary course in Gaelic-medium education as part of a national drive to head off teacher shortages. The go-ahead is conditional on sufficient numbers signing up. The move was announcedlast week by Alasdair Morrison, Deputy Minister for Enterprise and Lifelong Learning, who is the Western Isles MSP. Mr Morrison was officially opening the new pound;13 million campus for the FE college in Stornoway, one of the major building projects being undertaken for colleges in the University of the Highlands and Islands network.
