Registration with the General Teaching Council for England (GTCE) for trainee teachers, unqualified teachers and instructors

Close date: 27 June 2008

The Government consults on proposals to extend registration with the General Teaching Council for England (GTCE) to trainee teachers, unqualified teachers and instructors. Qualified teachers in maintained schools in England undertaking specified work, which covers the activities they carry out in their teaching capacity like the planning of lessons for pupils, are required to be registered with the General Teaching Council for England. However, others carrying out specified work in schools or training as teachers are not required to be registered because they are not qualified teachers.
