General Teaching Council (Registration of Temporary Teachers from Relevant European States) (England and Wales) Regulations 2009 come into force

Implementation date: 5 January 2010

The Regulations prescribe that school teachers from relevant European countries, who come to England or Wales to provide teaching services on a temporary or occasional basis, may temporarily register with the General Teaching Council for England or the General Teaching Council for Wales. This ensures that they are subject to the same requirements and safeguards that are in place for all other teachers in England and Wales. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
