Your account of the registering of teachers with the General Teaching Council (TES, August 17), fails to mention that the vast majority of teachers will be registered in time for the start of the new school year. Establishing a register of more than 400,000 individuals from scratch has been a major task for the council in its first year. We will register the relatively small number of teachers yet to be registered as soon as possible.Any teachers who wish to check on their registration should contact our helpdesk on 0870 001 0308.

Carol Adams Chief executive General Teaching Council 344-354 Gray's Inn Road London WC1
