    This idea is a headline-grabbing gimmick and an insult to the profession. There are far more urgent priorities that need to be addressed in order to raise the status and morale of teachers.

    Well said Deborah!Politicians would do well to ask the profession their views before they go public with their ideas. Truly astonishing.

    Teachers in Scotland have to be assessed against the Standards for Full Registration to be registered with the GTCS and be employed as a teacher.
    We now have standards for career long professional learning to develop experience and expertise throughout your career.
    The standards are underpinned by the themes of values, sustainability and leadership. Professional values are at the core of the Standard for Career-Long Professional Learning. They are integral to, and demonstrated through, all our professional relationships and practices.
    No need for an oath!
