About the Framework for Educational Leadership

The Framework for Educational Leadership is an online learning resource which supports professional learning in leadership for teachers at all stages of their careers.

Containing learning activities, resources, research and access to leadership development programmes in Scotland, the Framework is designed to inspire, motivate and challenge Scotland’s educators in schools and early learning establishments.

Learning activities within the Framework are based on the national model of professional learning and are mapped to the professional standards of the General Teaching Council for Scotland and the Scottish Social Services Council.

The Framework is a useful tool in supporting Professional Review and Development (PRD) and users are able to export a summary of their learning as evidence of their professional development.

We've produced a range of support resources which you can use individually, or at a whole school or team development session, enabling you to share how the Framework can enhance colleagues’ leadership development:
