Chartered

 

 

Louise Clark, strategic lead of Primary East been appointed as Lead Advocate of the Chartered College of Teaching. This role will see me represent and spread the word of the Chartered College in the local area. The Chartered College is the new professional body for teachers providing membership, professional development and the Chartered Teacher programme

 

What is the Chartered College?

 

We are the new professional body for teachers, there is currently no independent body that represents the teaching profession. We aren’t a union, we are a membership organisation that looks at what works in teacher’s classrooms and provides scholarship/CPD routes for teachers to become even better. We are launching a Chartered teacher programme as well as fellowship, for teachers who want to be further challenged and deserve the recognition they deserve for being a brilliant teacher. One of our primary aims is to arm teachers with evidence informed practice. What this means, is no more fads. What works in the classroom? Imagine, what would the future look like if teachers were doing what they knew made an impact on pupil outcomes. The potential is great and an opportunity we as a system cannot miss out on.
