Eligibility for Teacher Induction Scheme on completion of Initial Teacher Education
Students from Scotland, other parts of the UK (RUK) and other Member States of the European Union, who are studying at a Scottish Higher Education Institution are eligible to join the Teacher Induction Scheme (TIS) which is organised by the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS).
Participation in the TIS is not, however, compulsory for these students and some may choose to follow the alternative Flexible Route which is less structured and may better suit their personal circumstances.
Students from non-EU overseas countries who choose to attend Teacher Education Programmes at Scottish Universities can also follow the alternative Flexible Route to complete probationary service if they are able to remain in Scotland on completion of their studies.
GTC’s Preference Waiver Payment Scheme: 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.
