Commenting on proposed plans for teaching probationers, Liberal Democrat Education spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP said:

"The SNP gave away big prizes during their election spending spree. This latest announcement gives the first indication of what the real price attached to those prizes may be.

"In promising a job for all probationers, the SNP were careful to gloss over the small print. This approach is now becoming ever more difficult to sustain.

"Liberal Democrats want to make sure that Scotland has an education system that is excellent. Attracting the best teachers to this profession is key to achieving that."
