Independent sector

Probationary service can be completed within a Scottish Independent school but not through the Teacher Induction Scheme.

However, most Independent schools provide experiences similar to the Teacher Induction Scheme (TIS), whereby probationers may be considered for full registration after one academic year (190 days) of continuous, full time, relevant, satisfactory teaching service in one school.

Where experiences are not closely aligned to the Teacher Induction Scheme you would be expected to complete 270 days.
