2.3 Chartered teachers in Scotland

This course will help you to reflect on your previous knowledge and experience of teaching and learning, to consider what support may be available to you, and to begin to prioritise your professional development needs. The course originates from The Open University's Chartered Teacher Programme for Scotland but would be of interest to other teachers reflecting on their practice and considering their professional development opportunities.
