Education Scotland launches new national model of professional learning

NEW NATIONAL MODEL OF PROFESSIONAL LEARNING will support and strengthen professional learning for Scotland’s teachers.

Education Scotland today (Thursday, 20 September) launched a new model of professional learning at the Scottish Learning Festival 2018.

Developed in partnership with a range of stakeholders across the education sector, the national model of professional learning outlines the kind of learning that will empower education professionals and enable them to best meet the needs of learners.

The model provides a renewed and enhanced focus on professional learning and leadership and can be used by those leading, developing, providing and supporting learning.

Education Scotland chief executive Gayle Gorman said:

“Education professionals continuously engage in professional learning to stimulate their thinking and to ensure that their practice is critically informed and up-to-date.

This new national model of professional learning will support Scotland’s teachers by building upon previous guidance and identifying the key principles and features of effective learning that will build capacity and promote collaborative practices.”

The new model is available on the SCEL Framework for Educational Leadership
