Welcome to SPTC!
Looking for information about Scottish education from a parent or carer’s viewpoint, have a query about the role of the Parent Council or PTA, or an existing SPTC member with a burning question? Or maybe you run a club or group for children? You’ve come to the right place!
SPTC is a parents’ organisation dedicated to sharing information and advice to make parental involvement in Scottish schools as good as it can be. On this site you’ll find information we hope will be useful to you, and signposts to many other organisations. There’s information, too, about membership of SPTC for PTAs, PCs or other parent-led groups, and about how you can be involved in the biggest parents’ group in Scotland.
Make your voice heard by joining our on-line survey group. You’ll receive a short on-line survey every few months. You chose which ones to respond to and we promise not to share your details, ever.
Info and training sessions
Our team of regional advisers are out on the road with information and training sessions designed just for you.
