A CAREER IN EDUCATION OR EARLY YEARS

Scotland does have different professional bodies for some professions which historically didn’t accept qualifications from elsewhere in the UK.  This is rapidly changing and whilst some qualifications require a short period of re-training on Scottish specific elements, it doesn’t act as a barrier to immediate employment.  Moray Council will employ a teachers qualified elsewhere and support them through the registration process.  From entry level to school leadership positions, there is no shortage of vacancies and the area welcomes the fresh perspective and new ideas the wider Armed Forces family bring to school settings. 

All Moray Council vacancies can be found on Home | myjobscotland or via www.forcesfamiliesjobs.co.uk

Messy Church held at St.Aidans Church, RAF Lossiemouth.

RAF Lossiemouth has really made being a dual working family easy.  Beaches, forest walks and mountain bikes trails are on your doorstep and the camp has an indoor soft play facility for rainy days.  We also have a great childcare centre on camp.

I’ve also found the medical services within Moray more accessible for my kids compared to Lincoln.  This has added to my reasons for staying here for as long as possible.  It really is a different way of life up here.
