GTC Scotland Approves Provisional Professional Standard for Lecturers

The General Teaching Council for Scotland has approved the Standard for Provisional Registration (Lecturers in Scotland’s Colleges), providing a new transitional route to registration for a defined group of college lecturers who do not yet hold a GTC Scotland-recognised teaching qualification, or the equivalent for those qualified outside of Scotland.

Shona Struthers, Chief Executive of College Employers Scotland, said:

“We welcome this new transitional route to registration with GTC Scotland. This is a significant step forward for the sector which will ensure that all current lecturing staff in colleges are recognised for their professionalism and ultimately enhance the quality of provision available to students across the country. We will continue to work in partnership with key stakeholders to deliver registration and ensure that the college workforce is professionally recognised to meet the needs of students.”

Further details are available on the GTCS website.
