Changes to Password Reminders
On log-in, you will see a message which will prompt you to provide two new pieces of data: Secondary email and Mobile number. The pop-up message will be displayed at a frequency of once every three days until you provide the information. This data will be used to increase the security of how we manage your MyGTCS passwords.
We have updated our password security and no longer provide any MyGTCS password information over the telephone or via email. You will now be able to reset your password using the Reset Password link.
If you do not receive the password reset email, please check your email junk folder.

Engagement in the Professional Update process is a requirement for registration with us and impacts all current registrants. The Professional Update sign-off process occurs on a 5-yearly cycle.
When should I undertake my Professional Update sign-off?
The Professional Update sign-off process occurs on a 5-yearly cycle with registrants expected to undertake their sign-off by the end of the academic session, normally by 1 July. The year in which a registrant is required to undertake their sign-off is dependent upon their GTCS registration number. Find out which year applies to you:
- 2014/15 - registrants with a GTCS registration number of x9xxxx and x4xxxx
- 2015/16 - registrants with a GTCS registration number of x0xxxx and x5xxxx
- 2016/17 - registrants with a GTCS registration number of x1xxxx and x6xxxx
- 2017/18 - registrants with a GTCS registration number of x2xxxx and x7xxxx

If you are involved in the Teacher Induction Scheme - as a probationer, supporter, mentor or headteacher - then you do not need to register for a My GTCS account; an account has automatically been created for you.
If you are looking for the online profile system, this can be found by clicking the Teacher Induction Profiles link under the MyLinks section on the left of each page.
Probationers will get access to their profile any time from mid August to mid September. If you don't have access by mid September, please contact your local authority manager.
Guidance notes are available within the Profile section of MyGTCS. You will gain access to this area once your local authority probation manager has assigned you to your probationer(s).
