To ask the Scottish Government how it is supporting more people into STEM teaching roles.
Answered by: Richard Lochhead 13 March 2019
The Scottish Government is providing bursaries of £20,000 for career changers wishing to undertake a Post Graduate Diploma in Education in the STEM subjects where there is greatest demand.
We are also supporting a range of alternative routes into teaching which are aimed at attracting a broader range of people into profession, with a particular focus on STEM subjects.
