Code of Professionalism and Conduct

GTC Scotland is the independent professional body which maintains and enhances teaching standards and promotes and regulates the teaching profession in Scotland. The Council has a duty to regulate teachers in the public interest and, in so doing, is accountable to the public and the profession for maintaining standards and ensuring that teachers are fit to teach.

The protection of children and young people and their educational wellbeing, along with the reputation of, and the public’s trust in, the teaching profession, sits at the heart of GTC Scotland’s fitness to teach regulation. Therefore regulatory measures, which may seem to be punitive in effect, should always be viewed within the context of what is considered necessary to protect.
