    The update guidelines can be found here:
    http://www.gtcs.org.uk/web/FILES/professional-development/professional-update-guidance-notes.pdf

    According to the guidance, it looks like February will be fine and you'll get a reminder in April to get on with it if you haven't done it yet:

    5.1 GTC Scotland will send an e-mail to each registered teacher at the beginning of the school session in which they are required to complete the Professional Update sign-off process to alert them of this requirement. The planned date for this communication is 1 September each year.

    5.2 GTC Scotland will monitor completion of the Professional Update sign-off on a monthly basis. Every April, registered teachers who have not yet undertaken the sign-off process in their year of Professional Update will receive a reminder e-mail, setting out the requirements and timescales for completion of the sign-off process.

    5.3 GTC Scotland expects teachers to undertake the Professional Update sign-off process by the end of the academic session in which they are required to do so, normally by 1 July.

    Just wondered what kind of stuff people are including. It all seems a bit repetitive. "What form did your learning take? What was your learning about? How did you participate in your learning?"

    It was a presentation about xyz. It was about xyz, I watched a video about xyz.
    Has anyone really filled in the whole of all the boxes, uploaded notes etc?
