Schools and learning communities recognised for their excellent professional learning culture by GTC Scotland

The General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTC Scotland) has presented 20 Excellence in Professional Learning Award for Schools and Learning Communities.

This award celebrates and recognises schools and learning communities that support and lead professional learning which has a significant and sustained impact on teachers, classroom practice and learners.

Dr Pauline Stephen, Chief Executive and Registrar, GTC Scotland said: “It is vital that teachers are able to learn within a culture of professional trust and positive relationships. Our award recognises how teachers’ professional learning is being supported in our schools and learning communities. The commitment to learning throughout a teacher’s career helps ensure trust and respect in the teaching profession and positively impacts on the experiences and outcomes for learners.”

GTC Scotland’s Excellence in Professional Learning Awards were first launched in 2017 to celebrate those within the teaching and education sector in Scotland who excel at leadership, always show professionalism and bring about a sustained impact on learning and learners. The awards being celebrated now were due to be granted in 2020, but were delayed due to the pandemic. GTC Scotland will be looking at further opportunities to share the good practice demonstrated here as widely as possible.
