The General Teaching Council for Scotland

Enhancing professionalism in education since 1965

Update on the registration fee


All feedback received in response to the announced increase in registration fee has been relayed to GTC Scotland’s Council members. This was discussed at a full Council meeting held on 15 March.

Council has confirmed that there will be no change to the increase in annual registration fee, and this will increase to £65 from 1 April.

Council members would like to thank registrants for their suggestions and have taken the decision to form a group which will look at the various issues raised and suggestions made. These include the possibility of paying the fee in instalments. The group will comprise representatives from Council, the teaching profession and stakeholder organisations.

Further updates will be provided as the work of the group progresses.
