Scotland's only specialist union for Secondary Teachers


The SSTA believes that this report has the potential to reduce teacher workload and recommends that members use this report to seek reductions in bureaucracy. It is important that this document is included in schools Working Time Agreements negotiations and the intentions of Government are realised. The SSTA believes that teacher’s professional judgement needs to be acknowledged and respected in the process and allow teachers to focus on teaching and learning.

The report has four sections

  • Assessment
  • Forward Planning
  • Monitoring and Reporting
  • Self-Evaluation and Improvement Planning

FOUR posters have been produced to highlight the sections within the report for school notice boards.

 We believe that it is essential that the views of secondary teachers are firmly represented. Secondary teaching is not simply more specialised primary teaching.

Founded in 1944, the Scottish Secondary Teachers’ Association is Scotland’s only specialist union for Secondary Teachers. If you wish your views as a secondary teacher to be fully represented, there is only one union you can join.
