Teacher Induction Scheme

Now you are a probationer teacher, this area of our site will provide you with guidance and support throughout your probationary year via the Teacher Induction Scheme.

Initial Registration Fee

The initial registration fee of £65 is due before you enter the classroom in August.

Your initial registration fee will be deducted, using the bank details you provided on your online application form, on or around 23 July 2018.

Once payment has been confirmed you will be issued with an electronic Certificate of Provisional Registration and also your GTCS registration number. To ensure that your certificate is sent to the correct email address. Please login to MyGTCS and check your personal details.

If for any reason the direct debit is rejected, or you do not have one set up, we will contact you to advise you on other methods you can use to pay your fee.
