Professional Learning for School Principals: Developments in Scotland
O'Brien, Jim; Torrance, Deirdre
Education Research and Perspectives, v32 n2 p165-181 2005
This paper discusses the recent origins and development of professional learning and especially preparation programmes for Scottish school principals. Scotland has adopted a "standards" based approach to continuing professional development and a Framework of Standards has emerged since 1998. A synthesis of the official reports and some of the research available is offered with a view to highlighting the further developments now being advocated and consulted upon under the aegis of a teacher-focused national Continuous Professional Development Advisory Group and its sub-group on leadership.
