Initial Teacher Education (ITE)

Welcome to the Students area of the In2Teaching site. This area will provide you with all you need to know about applying for provisional registration with us.

Website and services downtime

The in2teaching website will be unavailable on Tuesday 20 February, and MyGTCS and the GTCS website will be unavailable on Monday 19 February due to scheduled maintenance. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.


The online GTCS registration application closed at midnight on Wednesday 10 January 2018.

If you have not applied for registration, the system will be unable to allocate you to a local authority post.

Please contact the Student Support Team immediately to check your registration status.

Students can change their preferences up until 5pm Friday 16 February 2018. Please ensure that you have supplied the correct contact number and email through your MyGTCS account.


Existing PVG application forms have been sent to all universities to be handed out to all students. You should have received these by now. Please complete the form (front page only) including identification and hand this back to your university administrator. They will then collate the applications and send them to GTC Scotland in bulk. Do not send existing PVG application forms directly to GTC Scotland or Disclosure Scotland unless told otherwise.

If you have any questions, please contact the Student Support Team.

Updating your email contacts

Please remember to check that your contact details are up to date. The Student Support Team will email you if there are any queries. As university email accounts are only 'live' during the period of your studies, we suggest that you add a private email account as your preferred email when you graduate. You can do this through MyGTCS.

To change your email address, login to MyGTCS and select the CHANGE option displayed next to your email. If you have any queries, please contact the Student Support Team through the contact details on this page.


If you would like to complete your probationary period in a denominational school, you will need to gain approval from the Scottish Catholic Education Service.


We have now completed the Fresher Talks with each University. If you were unable to attend a talk, please see the presentation below.

If you still have questions after reading the presentation, please send the team an email and they will be happy to help out.


The Standard for Provisional Registration (SPR) specifies what is expected of a student teacher seeking provisional registration with GTCS at the end of Initial Teacher Education. Having attained the SPR, all provisionally registered teachers continue their professional learning journey by moving towards the attainment of the Standard for Full Registration (SFR).
