I'd like to assure your columnist Stephen Jones ("To join or not the genrally tardy club", FE Focus, March 9) that the General Teaching Council welcomes all qualified teachers who wish to register. We're focusing on the 400,000 teachers required to register. But nyone who wishes to register should ring 0870 001 0308. This includes staff working in further education, education authorities, and the independent sector.
