About us

SSERC is a local authority shared service, providing support across all thirty-two Scottish Education Authorities.  Our services are available to elected members and officers of Local Authorities, teachers, student teachers and school and college technicians.

SSERC offers a broad portfolio of services, principally in support of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) areas of the curriculum, not available from any other source and which can be broken down into three main strands of activity:

  • provision of Professional Learning for early years, primary and secondary teachers, school and college technicians and childminders
  • the Advisory Service

We are a forward thinking organisation, which continues to develop and grow.  Our people are our greatest asset.
