Professional standards

Self-evaluation and reflection are an integral part of leadership development and the starting point for engagement with the Framework for Educational Leadership.

The Framework is designed to be used in conjunction with the professional standards of the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) and the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC).   

Professional values and personal commitment underpin every learning activity within the Framework and each activity will also allow you to reflect upon and develop against additional elements from:

  • The Standard for Registration
  • The Standard for Career-Long Professional Learning
  • The Standards for Leadership and Management
  • The Standard for Childhood Practice

 You will find the relevant standards referenced within each learning activity.
