Education Recovery additional funding 2021 - 2022: local authority allocations - additional £50 million

Details of additional funding made available to increase the number of teachers and pupil support assistants employed in schools.


As part of the Scottish Government’s 100 days manifesto commitment, we have now provided funding to councils to increase teacher numbers by 1,000 and classroom assistants by 500.  In addition to this funding, we have provided an extra £65 million annually to local authorities from 2022-23 which will support councils to employ additional staff on permanent contracts.
