Hello, I am a registered teacher in the USA with a Master's Degree in Secondary Education, plus I have two years of full-time secondary teaching experience at the middle school level. I received provisional registration from GTCS but need to complete 149 days of additional teaching because my current post is 10-11 year olds (6th graders), so it technically doesn't qualify for secondary. I arranged a grade switch in my current school to teach 12-13 years old so that I could quickly meet this requirement in a year (and thus receive full registration). However, when I emailed GTCS just to clarify that this would be enough, I was recently advised that a portion of this 149 days must be completed at the Senior Phase (high school diploma in the US or highers in Scotland). In other words, I have to teach high school for at least 75 days in order to qualify. You can imagine why this is problematic. I'm shocked at this parameter because I hadn't seen it in any of the literature/websites as I researched and pursued registration through the GTCS. Is there anyone who can provide me with some insight/tips on the flexible route...and if they were told something similar? Where was this parameter ever communicated?
