|This is the last issue of Scotland Learns before the summer break but it’ll be back in the new school year with more news, updates, advice and guidance in a fortnightly newsletter, tailored just for you.
We know it’s been a difficult year and the education profession has shown great dedication and commitment to supporting learners during these unprecedented times.
With that in mind, it’s Thank a Teacher Day on Wednesday 23 June and we are proud supporters of the event which celebrates schools, teachers and support staff across the UK. We want to encourage people from all across Scotland to get involved, so you can recognise a special teacher, teaching assistant, playground helper or even a whole school team by sending them a card.
We would like to say a big thank you to all of you and we’ll be back in the autumn. Have a wonderful, well-deserved summer break.
The National e-Learning Offer will continue to support learning and teaching in session 2021/22. Have a look at this flyer to see the range of support available and for more information.
