Teacher award ceremony recognises dedication to inclusion

A cohort of Scottish teachers received General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) Professional Recognition awards in Dyslexia and Inclusive Practice at a prestigious ceremony in Stirling on 11 December.

Twenty six educators successfully completed a one-year programme led by Dyslexia Scotland and Education Scotland.

The event focussed on the dedication of the teachers to their practice, helping to ensure that their classrooms and learning communities offer inclusive learning experiences.

The audience heard inputs from GTC Scotland, Education Scotland and Dyslexia Scotland about the contribution their practice makes to the national education landscape, as much as to the individual learners they engage in their classrooms.

Cathy Magee, Chief Executive of Dyslexia Scotland said, “Congratulations to the teachers who received their Professional Recognition awards. They join a movement of education professionals with enhanced expertise in dyslexia and inclusive practice. These teachers are essential changemakers, working towards a dyslexia-friendly Scotland that enables dyslexic young people to become successful, confident, respected and included.”
