The model of professional learning

As education professionals you engage in professional learning to stimulate your thinking and to ensure that your practice is critically informed and up-to-date.

To support and strengthen professional learning, Education Scotland has published a new national model of professional learning which replaces previous guidance.

The model of professional learning identifies the key principles and features of effective learning that will build capacity and promote collaborative practices. The new model provides a shared language and aspiration, informing the provision, structure and nature of learning. It also outlines the kinds of learning that will empower and enable you to best meet the needs of learners.

We will work with all national organisations and Regional Improvement Collaboratives to produce a range of materials to support your engagement with the new model and plan your professional learning.
