Review of Teacher Employment in Scotland. HMIE Submission of Evidence
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
From 2001 to 2006, following a request from the Scottish Executive, HMIE gathered evidence about the implementation of "A Teaching Profession for the 21st Century", the tri-partite agreement prepared in 2001 by Scottish Executive, COSLA and the teachers' unions. This "teachers' agreement" had been drawn up in response to the report of the McCrone Committee of Enquiry into teachers' pay and conditions of service. HMIE published "Teaching Scotland's Children", HMIE's report on implementation of the Teachers' Agreement, in 2007. Between 2007 and 2010, HMIE published a number of reports focusing on implementation of the agreement, findings of the inspection and review between 2005 and 2008, and findings of an aspect review of initial teacher education in Scotland. The last of these reports, published in 2010, was used by Graham Donaldson and his team as they drew up "Teaching Scotland's Future." Shortly after this report was published, HMIE set out their response to the report and its recommendations. This submission is firmly based on the findings of these reports and the extensive evidence base which lies behind them. (Contains 17 footnotes.)
