Responding to Policy Change
We have listed here some of the most recent reports that make important reading. The latest OFSTED annual report, highlights the 'comparably low status of teaching' and the chronic issues linked to recruitment and retention of staff.
The recently published report on the number of 'coasting schools' suggests that there are a significant number of schools where the results for pupils do not improve over time.
The latest PISA results suggest the profession has a lot to do to ensure we can truly say we are world class players in the global education family.
An important innovation for all our consideration in the new year is the brand new Chartered College of Teaching which will start to take members from January 2017.
Membership is voluntary and gives those working in education the opportunity to join an organisation that has the same professional standing as other membership organisations such as the Chartered Institute of Accountants, Surveyors or Physicians.
The new year brings opportunities for the profession to drive its own agenda for change and work together towards a vision where all learners achieve their full potential.
We love being a part of this agenda for change. We took a long break over Christmas and New year and are now back in our brand new offices to also carve new and innovative learning platforms for educators.
