I would like to thank all those who have without any doubt or hesitation contributed to this review of the Professional Standards for lecturers in Scotland's colleges. The response from the sector was gratifying with so many staff taking time to complete the survey and provide written comments.
The support from the Chairs and members of the Communities of Practice of Scotland's Colleges in developing the revised standards has provided a confidence that the standards could not be more up to date at this present time.
Many organisations that support the work of the sector have also provided useful comments and again I am grateful for them.
The comments from the three TEIs (Universities of Aberdeen, Dundee and Stirling) in supporting this review and providing their individual comments were valuable.
I am grateful to all the staff of Scotland's Colleges who have assisted me with this review particularly in the design and evaluation of the survey.
