If you join the GTC’s Preference Waiver Payment scheme - which means you agree to work in any Scottish local authority for your induction post - in return you will receive £8,000 if you are a secondary teacher, or £6,000 if you are a primary teacher. This payment will only be made if you complete your Teacher Induction Scheme year in the local authority that you have been allocated to.

Programme aims

Summary of this programme's aims.

Programme structure

Throughout the duration of the programme students will engage in both university-based learning and site-based learning, with groups of students being placed in school clusters: one cluster in year 1 and a different cluster in year 2. A cluster will typically be one secondary school together with associated primary and nursery provision. Placing students in groups will facilitate collaborative learning and support.

Teaching and assessment

The programme team has an enviable mix of professional experience as educators, and academic experience as leading researchers in the field of education. We share a passion for continued inquiry into our own education practices, and seek to engage with students on the programme in educational debate that will push the profession forward.
