The Scottish Parent Teacher Council (SPTC) is a parent-led membership organisation and charity providing help, support and advice to any parents and carers who want to be involved in their child's education.
Members are Parent Councils, parent teacher associations (PTA) and other parent groups who pay for membership, or have membership paid by their local authority. SPTC provides a variety of benefits including membership-linked insurance, designed especially for parent groups and the things they want to do.
SPTC also runs free training workshops tackling issues that parents ask them about, as well as providing leaflets and helpful resources, an advice line and news updates.
In 2013, SPTC was given Scottish Government grant funding with partner organisation Bemis for a pilot project – Gathered Together – which works with parent councils, local authorities and communities to build on engagement of parents from ethnic and cultural minorities.
