COSLA welcomes the news that the number of school teachers has increased over the last year

A COSLA Spokesperson said: “COSLA welcomes the news today (Tuesday) that the number of school teachers has increased over the last year.  

“There is no doubt that many councils, facing shortages in certain subjects and in some communities, have gone the extra distance to ensure that all children and young people have the teachers they need.  

“However, this must be seen in light of the reduction in real terms of local authority budgets. We also need to endeavour to ensure there are other key professionals required to improve the lives of children.”
