Scottish Schools Education Research Centre

Our teaching resources are now open access and available without logging in. The same goes for all the SSERC Bulletins more than a year old. You will still need to log in for any health and safety information.

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 technicians.  In addition, the majority of FE colleges and independent schools within Scotland are members of our organisation. Find out more about SSERC in our information leaflet.
