“STEM skills are so important in terms of local employment and we want to nurture curiosity and confidence from an early age.”
William Macdonald, Director of Education & Children’s Services at Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, said:
“We are delighted to be the next local authority to join the RAiSE programme and recognise that it will bring many benefits to our schools in the strengthening of primary sciences for both staff and learners. We look forward to supporting the development of the project over the next two years.”
RAiSE is a programme of The Wood Foundation, Education Scotland, Scottish Government, and participating local authorities. Comhairle nan Eilean Siar is the 16th authority to embark upon the programme which has delivered more than 50,000 hours of professional learning since 2016.
