About hearings

Details of any upcoming hearing will appear here at least five working days before it is due to take place.

Members the press and the public can attend hearings and a small number of observer places are available for this purpose. If you wish to attend as an observer, you should contact the GTCNI Regulation Team in advance by phone: (028) 9033 3390 or email: regulation@gtcni.org.uk



However, anyone wishing to attend a hearing should know that:

  • Hearings are subject to sudden cancellation or postponement. Those travelling long distances are advised to confirm that a hearing is still taking place by telephoning the GTCNI before the hearing; and
  • Hearings are held in public in accordance with the Human Rights Act. However, a registered teacher can request that all or part of a hearing be held in private. The Committee will consider any such request on the day of the hearing. Where all or any part of a hearing is held in private, this will not be open to observers.

If you are a member of the press and wish to attend a hearing listed here, you must contact GTCNI in advance by phone: (028) 9033 3390 or email: regulation@gtcni.org.uk
