WHY TEACH IN SCOTLAND?

As the main teaching agency in Scotland, TimePlan offers a totally unique opportunity for teaching in Scotland. From the beautiful Scottish Borders to the rugged Highlands the choice is yours.

With a wonderful blend of modern cities, ancient history, breathtaking landscapes and friendly people, Scotland is a must for any visitor to Europe.  We assist you with mandatory GTCS (General Teaching Council Scotland) registration, relocation and of course securing a teaching experience you will never regret or forget.

The Schools We Cover

TimePlan Scotland works in partnership with a number of Education Authorities, mainly located in rural areas which provide teachers with the opportunity to become part of the community.  Opportunities in Scotland are for long-term assignments rather than day-to-day teaching.  Schools vary but in general they provide an alternative to the inner city experience.

All teachers must be provisionally registered with the GTCS or already have full or provisional GTCS to be considered for any teaching positions in Scotland via TimePlan Education. This costs £189 and if you are seriously considering Scotland, we are happy to assist you with your application and answer any questions that you may have about the registration process and teaching in Scotland. However, the registration can take up to four months and you can’t get started without it, so make sure you prepare well in advance of your desired start-date.

Things to Do

The scenery in Scotland varies from lochs, heather-covered highlands and isolated islands, to lively cities such as Glasgow and Edinburgh along with their excellent culture and arts scenes.  Many a visitor to Scotland has searched for the Loch Ness Monster in the murky depths of Loch Ness but if you’re not one for the outdoors there are plenty of other options.  The annual Edinburgh Music Festival and Fringe Festival always provide exceptional entertainment.  Some find whisky tasting to be a warming activity which may be necessary, for health reasons of course!

Scotland’s sensational scenery does not have to be enjoyed in quiet contemplation or breathless wonder – get active!  If you enjoy walking, golf or water activities then Scotland has leisure activities for you.

Accommodation

Shared houses and lodgings will generally cost £40 – £60 weekly and a 1 or 2 bedroom flat will cost from £250 – £400 per month.  The length of letting time will in many cases be negotiable. TimePlan Education do have long lasting strong working relationships with our Scottish school clients and Scottish council clients, with most councils willing to support TimePlan with providing additional options for accommodation too. It’s a team effort to ensure your relocation runs smoothly!
