Having just completed 2014-2015 Professional Update (PRD) and started a new one for 2015-2016 it crossed my mind that does anyone at the GTCS actually read what I have submitted. If they do then I had a bit of fun with figures. Currently there are around 48,000 teachers in Scotland. If someone at GTCS spends 10 mins reading each PU this would take 480,000 minutes. This is 8,000 hours. For a 35 hour working week this equates to around 228 days. So, have GTSC appointed some poor soul whose sole(!) job is to spend all day, all year reading our Professional Updates (PRD)? I suspect not!
