Direct submission eligibility requirements

You can make a direct submission if:

  • You work outside Scotland
  • You are not working but want to stay on the Register of Teachers
  • We have not approved your employer’s professional learning process (we call this Professional Update validation).

You should not make a direct submission if:

  • You are absent from work with illness or on parental leave. You should contact your line manager and ask for a deferral. Read about the deferral process.
  • You are a supply teacher. Local authorities should support supply teachers through Professional Update. If you need advice on who to contact at your local authority, get in touch with us.
