The General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) is self-regulating body for teaching in Scotland and it is a legal requirement for any teacher teaching in Scottish schools to be registered with GTCS. From January 2016, some changes are made to the registration rules for Qualified Outside Scotland and Professional Registration applicants. Following this change, the Consulate General of Japan in Edinburgh is hosting a briefing session on the new GTCS Registration system for those who currently teach Japanese language, are willing to teach it in the future, or have teaching qualifications in Japan and are interested in teaching Japanese in Scotland, and so on. Ms Ellen Doherty (Director of Education, Registration and Professional Learning) from GTCS will explain what exactly has been changed under the new rules, and what kind of preparation you would expect to do to be registered as a Japanese language teacher in Scotland.
