The Public Services Reform (General Teaching Council for Scotland) Order 2011 will replace the existing legislation relating to the constitution and functions of the General Teaching Council Scotland (GTCS). It is subject to ‘super-affirmative’ procedure which means that a consultation draft must be laid in the Parliament and consulted on before the actual draft order is laid. This note looks at both the procedure and the substantive changes which would be introduced by this order.
