Probationers 2014/2015 – Welcome to Highland!


It was great to see the buzz at Milton of Leys this afternoon – a troop of new Probationers, ready to embark on the first year of their career. Anticipation for Monday, no doubt, ready for your first week at the chalk face.

As mentioned at the introduction day, there are two Literacy CPD training programmes available for Probationers currently. These are to be applied for through the CPD calendar, following the link below:


A two day Literacy programme [with an optional third day dedicated to writing] designed to combine the work of the Highland Literacy Project, alongside the recent developments of the Highland Literacy Group, giving you practical suggestions on how to embed Literacy within your classroom.

Day 3 should be applied for separately after consultation with your Head Teacher/ Probationer Mentor.
