Enhancing professionalism in education since 1965

Consultation on Education (Scotland) Bill opened

The Scottish Government has launched a consultation on the Education (Scotland) Bill. This bill is intended to introduce radical reforms to the education system in Scotland.

This includes provisions related to GTC Scotland. We will be providing a formal response in due course which we will make public. Our governing Council needs to consider its response. GTC Scotland supports change that will benefit children and young people.

The consultation paper and an overview of the Education (Scotland) Bill are available at the link below.
