Response to GTCS’s draft Professional Standards and Code

GTC Scotland invited views from anyone with an interest in education on a refreshed set of Professional Standards for teachers as well as a new Professional Code for teachers.

The Professional Standards and Professional Code are integral to the working lives of teachers. These documents guide teachers through their careers, ensuring high standards and encouraging professional learning in order to continually update and develop skills
The Professional Standards have been refreshed and the Code revised to reflect the changing educational landscape and the needs of teachers and, importantly, children and young people.
The consultation opened on 30 September 2019 and closed 20 December 2019.
