The Standard for Full Registration (college lecturers)

To be awarded Full Registration in Further Education, college lecturers must:

  • Meet the Standard for Provisional Registration (Lecturers in Scotland’s Colleges) and
  • Achieve a GTC Scotland-recognised teaching qualification or the equivalent.

Professional lecturers contribute to making Scotland a great place to live, learn and work by transforming lives through high quality learning. In taking forward this vision, lecturers play a key role in enabling people from all sections of the community to be included in education, achieving their potential as successful learners, citizens and contributors to sustainable economic growth. Lecturers create supportive environments by working collaboratively with stakeholders,including employers, across all learning communities.

The Professional Standards support the achievement of this vision by providing a clear description of the professional practice, knowledge, behaviours, qualities and capabilities that lecturers in colleges are expected to develop, maintain and enhance throughout their careers. These Standards will be used for a range of purposes including:

  • Underpinning professional teaching qualifications for lecturers in Scotland’s colleges;
  • Developing critically reflective and evaluative practitioners;
  • Supporting professional dialogue and collegiate working;
  • Supporting professional development; and
  • Contributing to ongoing developments across the sector.
