GTC Scotland Professional Standards

For the last few months, GTC Scotland has been working with colleagues across the profession on a revision of the GTC Scotland Professional Standards. The working titles of the revised standards are: Standards for Registration (encompassing a Standard for Initial Registration and a Standard for Full Registration), the Standard for Career Long Professional Learning, and The Standards for Leadership and Management (encompassing A Standard for Middle Leadership and a Standard for Headship). A generic set of values has been developed to be used across each of the standards.

The revised standards will be available online in August, as part of a consultation exercise. A programme of Glow TV events has been arranged, to enable teachers to hear our thinking about the content of the revised standards, and to engage in discussion about this. These Glow TV events will take place on the following dates 30th August, 6th, 13th and 27th September, with the first three focussing on the individual standards and the final session looking at the overall standards framework.

Further details and an opportunity to sign up to take part in these events will be available on the Glow TV schedule before the summer break. GTC Scotland Professional Standards Glow TV Events.
