Motion #36
Carried
  • EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

THAT Conference reasserts that decisions regarding educational content and delivery should be made by experienced education professionals. As such, Conference welcomes the creation of a Chartered College of Teaching in England. Conference believes that the College, as an independent body, can complement the work of the education unions towards repositioning the locus of expertise for pedagogy, curriculum, assessment, pastoral care and well-being within the profession.

Conference calls on the Executive Committee to work closely with the Chartered College as it develops by:

(i) sharing information about the challenges and needs of the profession

(ii) strengthening the voice of the profession through opportunities for joint working, particularly around issues of professionalism and teachers’ professional development.
