What is the Teacher Induction Scheme?

The Teacher Induction Scheme (TIS) provides a guaranteed one-year training post in a local authority to every eligible student graduating with a teaching qualification from one of Scotland's universities.

GTC Scotland, in partnership with the Scottish Government, is responsible for the administration of the scheme.

The scheme is not compulsory; you can choose to follow the Flexible Route instead. The Teacher Induction Scheme allows probationer teachers to be considered for full registration within one school year (190 teaching days). It offers a number of benefits, including:

  • a maximum class contact time of 0.8 full time equivalent (GTC Scotland endorsed)
  • dedicated time set aside for Professional Learning 
  • access to a teacher for support throughout the induction year.
