Itchy Coo is still publishing exciting new books in Scots. But the Itchy Coo Education and Outreach project ended in 2011. The Itchy Coo project brought the Scots language to life for so many children and young people and their teachers. Our hard work and determination revolutionised attitudes towards the language in the classroom and succeeded in professionalising the teaching of Scots in our schools.

We would like to thank the huge number of people who worked on the Itchy Coo initiative, in particular Mirka Ryjackova and Marianne Mitchelson for all their love and support.
