Probation process

If you are completing all or the majority of your probation in one school, your probationary service should follow a structured process.

It is vital that you tell the headteacher of your school that you have a probationary period to complete. They may be able to make arrangements to have relevant support put in place for you.

If you are completing your probation in a Scottish school, you are required to record your teaching service using the online profile system.

If you are completing your probation outwith Scotland, or you are completing probation for a second or subsequent subject, you are required to record your teaching service using paper-based documentation.

Irrespective of whether you are using the online profile system or paper-based reports, it's important to record your information as you go along.
