Abstract

Scotland is a discrete jurisdiction within the devolved governance arrangements of the United Kingdom, and education is the largest area of devolved responsibility. The preparation of teachers in Scotland remains different from other UK provision, particularly in England. The proposals contained in the 2011 report Teaching Scotland’s future, conducted by Graham Donaldson (former Chief Inspector at Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Education), are discussed. Insights are offered into the resulting action progress made to date and the implications for the future of initial teacher education and early career development north of the border.
