GTCS regulates the teaching profession in Scotland through its fitness to teach process.

What is the fitness to teach process?

The fitness to teach process is in place to ensure public protection and maintain proper teaching standards.

The process is not about disciplining or punishing teachers, it is about ensuring that we have a teaching profession in Scotland that is and remains fit to teach so that public trust and confidence in teachers is maintained and the learning of our children and young people is protected.
