Memorandum on entry requirements
Under the terms of the Public Services Reform (General Teaching Council for
Scotland) Order 2011, it is for the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) to determine what constitutes a
recognised teaching qualification for individuals seeking registration with GTCS as a school teacher. As part of this process, and after due
consultation, the GTCS sets minimum entry requirements for the teacher education programmes in Scotland (provided by certain universities) that lead to a recognised teaching qualification. These are the minimum entry requirements.
