• General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS)

    The General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) was one of the first teaching councils in the world when it was set up in 1965. In 2012, legislation passed by the Scottish Parliament made it the world's first independent, self-regulating body for teaching.

    GTCS is governed by a Council made up of 19 elected teachers, 11 nominees from stakeholder groups and seven appointed lay members. Council members serve for four years and election/reappointment processes take place every two years when half of the members step down. The Council sets GTCS policy.

    The Council is supported in its work by an experienced and dedicated Management Team who are responsible for our strategic direction.

    We have a shared set of values that speak for who we are, how we work and how we want to be seen as a national educational organisation.

    We have prepared a Gaelic translation of our about us, available at Mu ar dèidhinn.

  • Association of Headteachers and Deputes in Scotland (AHDS)

    AHDS (Association of Headteachers and Deputes in Scotland) was established in 1975 by a group of forward thinking primary head teachers who felt that catch-all teacher unions were not properly representing their interests in policy debates or supporting them when things went wrong.

    Over the years, we have evolved and expanded.  We now welcome HT, DHT and PT members from nurseries, primaries and ASN schools.  Our core purpose is to give a separate voice to this key group of education leadership professionals.

    We are the least expensive school leaders' union in the UK and have frozen our membership fees since 2008! We have good relationships with key players in Scottish Education and continually work to influence developments in the interests of our members and Scotland’s children.
