IN THIS SECTION
The Register of Teachers holds detailed information about the teaching profession in Scotland. The information we are entitled to hold is set out in the Teachers' Registration (Scotland) Rules.
Each year we produce a statistical digest showing the numbers of registered teachers by voting category, age, gender and sector. The digest also shows the numbers of probationer teachers in the Teacher Induction Scheme by age, gender and sector as well as information on subject specialisation, ethnicity and disability declaration.
In the coming months we will be making a number of dynamic reports available through these pages that will allow those interested to query the database in real time.
In the meantime, you might want to download the following publications:
