Aberdeen City Council offer primary teaching tuition to staff

Aberdeen City Council is offering to pay the tuition fees of staff who want to become primary school teachers in a bid to tackle a shortage.

The authority has emailed all of its workers offering to pay their way through an 18-month diploma course at the University of Aberdeen.

They would do this while continuing in their existing job.

The council has a severe shortage of primary teachers, which has already seen it offer incentives in past years.
