Professional Standards

GTCS maintains a suite of Professional Standards which are underpinned by the themes of values, sustainability and leadership. Professional values, sustainability and leadership are at the core of the Standards. They are integral to, and demonstrated through, all our professional relationships and practices.

Please note: A new suite of Professional Standards was approved by GTC Scotland's council on 9 December 2020. These were launched on 13 January 2021, and enacted on 2 August 2021. View the Professional Standards 2021 here.
