Since the first edition of Scottish Education was published in 1999 the world of professional development for teachers in Scotland has changed considerably - a pattern that looks likely to continue for the foreseeable future. This chapter will therefore focus on current issues and implications for the future; the equivalent chapter in the first edition provides a more detailed exploration of the historical background.
