My partner had been looking on the vacancies pages on their website, and there are 100s of jobs up for grabs in Scotland at the moment.
Especially in Fife and the North.
Also Fife has lots of vacancies for teachers to teach Scottish as a second language, is this Gaelic,or to teach English to non native children?
Thanks for any replies.

I think some schools are promoting Lowland Scots as a dialect, so it could be to teach this as a second language. A lot of Scots speak English, but add slang. This is not the same as Lowland Scots. :)

The ancient language of the Scots sometimes called Lallans or Doric in all its rich complexities and variations is most certainly NOT a dialect of English but a distinct language I its own right see Robert Burns, Dunbar or Lewis Crassic Gibbon

There seems to be a general shortage of teachers throughout the country and a recruitment campaign at the moment on TV. My son is on training now with 55 others in the Merseyside area.

We did Gaelic when I was in school. It's always been an option up here. Not sure what they mean by Scottish though.

Also lots of primary schools around now that do all their teaching in Gaelic.

My brother in law is a biologist and head of science at an academy in Sunderland. He loves Scotland and I have often said to him he should move up but he says he would have to sit exams and take a drop in pay......I thought a teacher was a teacher

Who wants to be a School Teacher in this day and age, attempting to learn a generation of kids who dont know right from wrong, that were brought up by a generation who did and still dont know right from wrong. Jeez they even have to have Teacher Assistants in case they are accused of wrongdoing.

Stevie, My youngest was 15 when the belt was banned and he told me that pupils took the mick with teachers as far as possible knowing their was nothing they could do about it. Esther Ranson was another mistake with child protection and brings back the memory when my youngest son told me to get lost as he was not going back to school. When he came too, "litterally" and picked himself up off the deck he had a change of heart. Driving the general public around for 20 years in my taxi enabled me at first hand to witness the break down of discipline and the could not care attitude of that generation and allowed me to witness the largest part of the younger generation who want everything without having to work for it. School kids pass my house every day and in the morning they have a packet of crisps in one hand and a can of drink in the other discarding them on the pavement when they are finished or throwing them into a garden. Lunch time they make their way to either the local chip shop or chinese takeaway and discard their rubbish wherever they are when finished and you dare not tell them to take their rubbish away. I know it is wrong but I would not let a youngster entry into my garden even if he showed an interest in the pigeons for fear of what the consequences could be. What a world we are living in now.
