No to re-accreditation
An overwhelming majority of teachers supported the motion that "this AGM totally oppose the concept of re-accreditation for teachers". The General Teaching Council for Scotland was "invited" by the Scottish Government in February to "develop and consult on proposals for a system of accreditation". Teachers argued, however, that their job was already the "most navel-gazing and scrutinised profession on the planet". It did not matter how "cuddly" the scheme, teachers did not want it, said Tom Tracey from Inverclyde.
