Teacher struck off

A TEACHER has been struck off the teaching register after giving two pupils false extra marks enabling them to pass an assessment.

Scott Shields, a business management teacher at Galashiels Academy in the Scottish Borders, provided false information to the Scottish Qualifications Authorty (SQA) regarding two pupils' NAB assessments.

He has been prohibited from applying to re-register for three months. Applications to re-register are considered by a fitness-to-teach panel.
