School head allowed unregistered teacher to take classes for a year

A school head allowed an unregistered teacher to take classes for a year and let an unvetted member of staff work with children.
One charge read: “Between May 11 2015 and May 31 2016, permit an individual to carry out teaching duties at Kinlochbervie High School in the knowledge that the individual was not registered with GTC Scotland.”

She also admitted allowing “an individual to carry out regulated work with children…in the knowledge that the individual was not a member of the PVG [Protecting Vulnerable Groups] Scheme”.

She also allowed “payments to be made to the individual in respect of invoices that had not been completed in accordance with Highland Council Financial Regulations Policy”.
There was no explanation from the GTCS or Highland Council for Mrs Robertson’s conduct.
During one month last year there were 28 vacancies advertised on the Highland Council website for a range of full-time and part-time roles at both primary and secondary schools with salaries ranging to almost £36,000 for the higher bands.
