Stand in the 2021 Chartered College Council elections

Make your mark. Shape the future of teaching and stand for the Chartered College of Teaching’s Council.


Members and Fellows are encouraged to stand for election and play an active role in the Chartered College of Teaching in its important work to support the profession as it emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Chartered College is at the heart of supporting excellent teaching and fostering collaboration across the profession. Members – the majority of whom are teaching in schools – are helping to develop the Chartered College’s strategy as it works to strengthen teacher expertise. The Council is responsible for the governance and the strategic direction of the Chartered College and safeguards its reputation and values.

With over 45,000 members, the Chartered College has reached an important stage in its development. This is a fantastic opportunity to share your insights and play a part in raising the status of teaching and ensuring the voice of teachers are heard.



For the 2021 election, Members and Fellows can stand for one of six Council Member positions. Fellows are also able to stand for the role of Vice President (Policy Development and Advocacy).

The results will be announced at the Chartered College of Teaching’s Annual General Meeting on Saturday 4th December.

The Chartered College of Teaching is committed to furthering equity, diversity and inclusion across our organisation to ensure that we fully represent the teaching profession. We welcome applications from all candidates, particularly those with protected characteristics that are currently underrepresented in the profession, including those from Black, Asian, minority ethnic groups, LGBTQ+ and persons with disabilities.
