Council Elections

GTC Scotland is governed by a Council of 37 members. This includes 19 elected registered teachers, 11 educational stakeholder nominees and seven lay members appointed by an independent Appointments Committee.

A rolling programme of elections, nominations and appointments for approximately half of the Council membership takes place every 2 years. This ensures we retain a degree of operational continuity within Council. Council members serve for a 4-year term.

Council members have a significant role in shaping the teaching profession of Scotland, maintaining and improving Professional Standards and contributing to the development of teacher professionalism and Scottish education.
