Inclusive teacher training programme launches


So far 52 educators have achieved recognition

Applications have opened for the 2024 Dyslexia and Inclusive Practice teacher training programme.

Co-delivered by Dyslexia Scotland and Education Scotland, the groundbreaking GTCS Professional Recognition programme equips teachers and lecturers to create dyslexia-friendly practices in their learning establishments.

Fifty-two educators have successfully achieved the Professional Recognition Award since the pilot in 2020.

One previous participant said: “The award has made me more confident within my role as a teacher. It has had a positive impact within the school as colleagues are happy to ask questions to better support our learners. Parents/carers are more trusting that I am doing everything I can to support their child.”

Cathy Magee, Dyslexia Scotland chief executive, said: “We’re delighted to be running this professional learning programme in conjunction with Education Scotland.

"The programme is equipping teachers with the professional courage to provoke change and make significant in-roads to making Scotland’s schools far more dyslexia inclusive

“The programme is a keystone of our ambition to make Scotland a dyslexia-friendly country. I’m so proud of the work our alumni are doing in their learning communities and I look forward to welcoming a new cohort later this year.”

GTCS-registered educators should apply via Dyslexia Scotland’s website before midnight on 24 May.
