Blueprint for College of Teaching to be unveiled

A “blueprint” setting out proposals for a new member-driven College of Teaching is to be published on February 10.

It is based on responses from teachers and others to a discussion document published last summer as part of a Commission set-up by the Prince’s Teaching Institute (PTI) to develop the proposal.

Earlier this month, the PTI revealed that its study of 1,200 teachers and school leaders showed strong support for a College to speak for the profession on issues such as “professional standards, educational policy, raising the status of teaching in society, and advising policy-makers on curriculum, assessment and school inspection”. 

There was also support for the College to set teacher-defined standards, structure CPD and promote the use of research, the PTI reported.
