General Teaching Council for Scotland
GTCS is the independent professional body which promotes and regulates the teaching profession. We maintain the register of teachers in Scotland, set the Professional Standards for the teaching profession, accredit programmes leading to the award of these Standards, including Initial Teacher Education programmes at Scottish universities, and manage the scheme of Professional Update. We also operate and promote the Professional Recognition initiative which supports teachers’ expertise and experience and which accredits professional learning.
