Registering with GTC Scotland

In this talk, Senior Education Officer Sarah Stevenson and Allocations Officer Jac Clowes, provide background on GTC Scotland and important information for student teachers on our Codes of conduct, online applications, probation and using your MyGTCS account.

Guidance for completing the Student Application Form

Completing the Student Application Form is a simple process that should take around 15 minutes. This guidance document and step-by-step video will help answer any questions that may arise during completion.


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).


If you are wishing to defer for any reason, please ensure that you read the deferral process before you complete a deferral request form. Send this and any relevant information to Student Support for consideration. If you have already deferred from a previous year, your MyGTCS account will currently show that your induction scheme is set to NO. This will change when allocations have been processed for all current and deferred students. If you have any questions, please contact the Student Support Team.


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.


If you would like to discuss your registration with us, please contact Student Support by completing the GTC Scotland contact us form selecting 'Student Teachers' as your reason for contact.
