The Chartered College of Teaching: An update

The Chartered College of Teaching is now open and is recruiting its founding members. As such, we invited chief executive Dame Alison Peacock to explain the work of the college, including how it plans to support teachers’ CPD and spread best practice

In January of this year, the Chartered College of Teaching – a new teacher-led professional body for teachers – opened its doors to members.

The Chartered College of Teaching is the result of a number of organisations working together, including the Prince’s Teaching Institute and the Claim Your College campaign, to develop a recognised professional body for the teaching profession.

In 2016, the Department for Education (DfE) agreed to provide a total of £5 million over four years to help the Chartered College establish itself. The intention is that, in the long-term, the Chartered College will be funded by membership subscriptions and its own charitable activities.
