Learning for Sustainability and the Professional Standards – monthly Connect session #12

2nd November 2023 , 4:00 pm 5:15 pm

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

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 in Scotland.

In Scotland, the 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.

Join us and the General Teaching Council for Scotland at our monthly drop-in 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.

About this session

What Learning for Sustainability values are needed when applying to become a teacher in Scotland?

This session will be an opportunity for participants to contribute to Education Policy through the lens of Learning for Sustainability.

Suzy Aldous from GTC Scotland will be engaging with you on the current review of ‘The Memorandum on Entry Requirements to Programmes of Initial Teacher Education’.

This key policy looks at the values and qualifications that are the minimum entry requirements to programmes of Initial Teacher Education. In this Connect session we will have an opportunity to review the policy and give input on what is needed to ensure that Learning for Sustainability is woven across the expectations of teachers entering the profession today.

We ask that you take some time, if possible, ahead of the session to familiarise yourself with the Memorandum of Understanding.
