I've been asked for it on an application form but don't know where I'd find it. Can anyone help?
Are you in England?
In which case you write N/A.
It's an old form, they haven't revised it, the GTC was banished 4 years ago.
Do they ask you for your DfES number too?
P.S. Have you found the 20+ advice articles on different aspects of applications? Tag me @TheoGriff if not, and I'll point you towards them.
Thanks TheoGriff......I thought GTC didn't exist anymore but because it was there thought I had my wires crossed.
Since deciding to leave my current position I have read quite a few of your advice articles and plan to use many of the tips - one of the reasons I posted on here as I didn't want to leave a box empty
Forgot to add they did want DfES number too - which I know already identifies who I am etc
Unless they're planning to bring it back with the academies. I'm not joking.
Yes, it's just one of the old names for the teacher reference number.
Hi, I have also been asked for a GTC number which I have written as my TRN, but then it asks if I am GTC registered and whether I have paid this years' registration. How should I fill that in?
If the school is in England they're idiots. The GTC was abolished in 2012 and so was the requirement for teachers to register. So you don't have a GTC number and you pay a registration fee. Have they really not noticed this after 6 years!
Assuming you would quite like to work for them probably best not to tell them they need to update their form, just put N/A against both questions.
Old application form, fill in TRN and leave the rest blank or N/A. Consider not working for a school with such poor processes.
