Probationer teachers

Completing probation in the independent sector

Probationary service can be completed within a Scottish independent school.

Most independent schools provide experiences similar to the Teacher Induction Scheme (TIS). After completing these experiences, probationers may be considered for Full Registration after one academic year (190 days) of continuous, full time, relevant, satisfactory teaching service in one school.

Where experiences are not closely aligned to TIS you would be expected to complete 190 days in line with the Flexible Route.
