There is no doubt that the introduction of a General Teaching Council (GTC) is a major event in educational history. It has implications for every aspect of teaching as a career and affects every teacher. John Sayer explains in detail the importance of the General Teaching Council to such central issues as: professional ethics, expectations and discipline; the morale, status, recruitment and retention of teachers; the qualification, training and development of teachers; the nature, organization and procedures of the teaching profession; and the links between the GTC and other organizations, especially government and unions. Throughout the study the author is careful to inter-relate developments in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland.
