Potential models considered for Scottish College for Educational Leadership

22nd March 2013 at 00:00

Three national leaders have been appointed to come up with potential models for the Scottish College for Educational Leadership.

The team is comprised of a headteacher, a representative from the university sector and another representing Scottish local authorities. They will have six months to scope potential options, with an announcement expected at the Scottish Learning Festival in September.

The final decision on the most appropriate model for Scotland will then rest with the National Implementation Board, set up by the government on the recommendation of the National Partnership Group, to drive forward change in teacher education.

The creation of the college was envisaged in the NPG report, published late last year, which outlined how Graham Donaldson's review of teacher education, Teaching Scotland's Future, could be put into action.

The college was needed because of the "heightened focus on professional learning and leadership development", it said. It also expected the college to be up and running by August.

Professor Donaldson also recommended that a college should be developed "to improve leadership capacity at all levels within Scottish education".
