Professional Update

Professional Update was launched by GTC Scotland in August 2014 for all fully registered teachers. Teachers in Scotland are required to engage in professional learning, self-evaluate this learning using the GTC Scotland Professional Standards, and maintain a record of this learning using their online profile on MyGTCS (or another system agreed by their local authority). The Professional Review and Development (PRD) discussion is also an integral part of the process. Every five years confirmation of this engagement is required by the teacher and their line manager in order to maintain full registration.
