Our UK Director Ali MacLachlan shares her thanks for those we are proud to work in partnership alongside to empower young people with the skills, experiences, platforms, and opportunities to be the successful citizens of today and tomorrow.
“Each year we like to take a moment at the end of the summer term to reflect on the commitment and the amazing work of Scotland’s education workforce. But this year, that gratitude is even deeper.
“The final term of 2019/20 was so difficult as the world was thrown into disarray. Everyone was in firefighting mode. Teachers provided a vital, consistent support to young people. Never did I imagine writing a year later that this tumult would continue and we would still be managing such continued disruption.
“From adapting to remote teaching, to developing vital community partnerships, to working within new assessment structures – teachers have been the swans of the crisis for their students. So many tireless hours, so much hard work, and lots of difficult questioning and decision making to provide calm and clarity for young people.
