Do I need GTC registration?

    Hi everyone. I am an NQT about to start my first teaching job. I have heard that it is essential to register with the GTC but I am aware they are due to disband soon so I'm not sure if it's still necessary. I don't want to pay the fee for the year and then lose it when the council no longer exists. Does anyone have any advice?

  3. The GTC holds the register of all teachers, this will be transferred to another body (part of the DfE I think) I'm guessing when that happens we'll pay them instead! So yes, you need to pay and will probably still pay in the future.
     
  4. The GTC will be disbanded in Aprilo this year. Its registration functions will be taken over by the newly formed Teaching Agency (the Training and Development Agency (TDA) is also being disbanded). At present the law requires those with QTs empolyed as teachers in the state sector to be registered withg the GTC. In many instances the LA/Academy subsidises the cost of registration. If you are a employed as a teacher the the head of your school has a legal duty to check that you are registered with the GTC and this has not changed, even though everyone knows it will be disbanded. Talk to your employer about registration.
