COSLA RESPONSE TO ENQUIRY ABOUT TEACHER RECRUITMENT

A Cosla Spokesperson said: "This is an issue where there are some problems.  

"It is for these issues that a joint workforce planning group has been established with COSLA, Scottish Government, ADES, the unions and the GTC to look at the issue on a national basis across the board.

"In addition at an individual council level Councils have their own strategies in place for trying to alleviate some of the issues.

"A recent example of these local strategies was Moray council for offering housing incentives in a bid to attract teachers.  Aberdeenshire have also done something similar."
