It is a legal requirement for any teacher teaching in a Scottish school to be registered with GTC Scotland. Being registered not only allows an individual to teach but it also provides assurances to employers, parents and children that teachers meet a national standard of teaching.

Our Registration Services Department is responsible for processing thousands of applications each year from students, those returning to teaching and teachers qualified outside Scotland.
