Join us and the General Teaching Council for Scotland at our monthly ‘LfS Connect’ online sessions to connect with other practitioners and contributors to share, celebrate and discuss more about Learning for Sustainability and what it means for you, your practice, your setting and your wider learning community.

Learning for Sustainability – a professional commitment

Learning for Sustainability is an international and national priority in education.

In Scotland, making a professional commitment to learning and learners that is compatible with the aspiration of achieving a sustainable and equitable world embodies what it is to be a teacher. Scotland’s Professional Standards for teachers are underpinned by Learning for Sustainability as a key cross-cutting theme; interdependent with the other key cross-cutting themes of Values and Leadership.
