GTCS Elections 2018

GTCS matters for every teacher

The EIS supports the work of the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) in its significantly important role in Scottish education.

The work of the GTCS impacts on teacher professionalism and the work of teachers throughout their careers.

This role is of particular importance in light of Professional Update, the development of teacher professionalism and the need to enhance the status of the teaching profession.

Why strong teacher voice on GTCS Council matters

  • To be able to teach in Scotland, every teacher must be registered, and remain registered, with GTCS
  • The GTCS sets 3 professional standards; The Standard for Registration, The Standard for Career-Long Professional Learning and The Standard for Leadership and Management
  • The GTCS accredits Initial Teacher Education as well as playing a critical role in the area of professional learning
  • Cases of alleged teacher misconduct or incompetence are reported to GTCS, which has the right to use the ultimate sanction of removing teachers from the GTCS Register.
