Equality and Diversity Statement

GTC Scotland promotes equality and diversity because we respect and value difference. We want everything that we do to be fair to all individuals and groups.

While all teachers registered with us must meet the required professional standards of conduct and competence, we want to promote an inclusive profession that:

  • incorporates people from a range of diverse backgrounds
  • respects the principle of equal treatment.

We understand that varied perspectives will make valuable contributions to the teaching profession and that this will benefit learners.

We want to ensure that all of our policies and services are free from discrimination.

We seek to promote equality of opportunity by recognising and developing the diversity of talent of staff and Council members under an ethos of mutual respect and trust.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy

Our Equality and Diversity Policy demonstrates our commitment to the promotion of equality and diversity and how we take equality into consideration in everything we do.

The strategic objectives and priorities in our Strategic Plan are supported by the actions set out in our Equality and Diversity Action Plan.
