The General Teaching Council for Scotland

Enhancing professionalism in education since 1965

Who We Work With

GTC Scotland works with other regulatory bodies who are responsible for the profession in their respective countries. We meet with these bodies twice a year to discuss topical issues. You will find links to these organisations under the useful links section below.

We also work closely with Scottish Government, Education Scotland, professional teacher organisations, local authorities and many more.

Memorandum of Understanding

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is an agreed framework for co-operation and collaboration between organisations. It does not affect statutory functions or amend policies or agreements already in place.

In February 2011 we signed an MoU with the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) in order to help us to fulfil our statutory duties as effectively and efficiently as possible.

In August 2012 we signed an MoU with the Scottish Government in order to collaborate, promote and improve learning and teaching in Scotland with the aim of increasing opportunities and improving outcomes for learners.
