Teach with the Best in the South West
Friday, 23 February 2018 15:24
Providing the best start in life for all our children and being inclusive are priorities for Dumfries and Galloway Council.

So, we’re recruiting top quality teachers.

The purpose for our education service is clear and simple: increase participation, attainment and achievement for all young people aged 2 to 18. We will achieve this by maximising opportunity for our staff to develop and innovate through collaborative working.

We believe in developing the autonomy of schools, headteachers and staff to enable learning and teaching of the highest quality.

We're innovative in using resources to ensure our commitment to invest in our staff and teaching practice.

In Dumfries and Galloway, our education service is as unique as the area itself. We’re proud of our rich mix of schools: large/small, urban/rural, partnership/all-through.

Education facilities are no longer just schools and our vision for them demonstrates the high value we place on lifelong learning. Our education facilities must be well designed, maintained and managed and be facilities that enrich the lives of learners and their families and of which they can be proud and enjoy using.

Our spectacular region offers a rich and diverse lifestyle choice for families, couples and singles, including world class bike trails and fabulous festivals.

Councillor Jeff Leaver, chair of the Children, Young People and Lifelong Learning [CYPLL] committee, said: “Providing the best start in life for all our children is a priority for our Council. From early learning through to the end of secondary education, Dumfries and Galloway offers career challenge, development and opportunity along with a first class quality of life.”

Councillor Ros Surtees, vice chair, said: “Our Council’s investment in our school estate has been very impressive in recent years. In addition to a range of major improvements at schools across the region, outstanding examples include the stunning extension at Douglas Ewart High School, the fabulous new Dalbeattie Learning Campus, and the exciting development of North West Community Campus in Dumfries.”
