We now seeking to appoint up to eight classroom teachers to join the existing Trustees during the Autumn Term 2016
The Chartered College of Teaching is the new independent and voluntary body for the teaching profession. At the heart of the Chartered College is supporting teachers to gain the evidence-informed expertise they need to achieve and maintain genuine excellence – achieving the best outcomes for children, young people and adult learners
The Chartered College aims to secure the status and recognition for teachers enjoyed by other professionals like doctors, lawyers and engineers. Our approach will be to offer teacher-led professional standards, a platform for knowledge mobilisation and a commitment to continuous development that must underpin the professionalism of teaching.
The Chartered College is working with teachers, headteachers, unions, subject associations and learned societies, schools, academy trusts and other education organisations to build a professional community of teachers. It is early days for the Chartered College and this is a period of exciting challenge and significant change.
Thirteen Founding Trustees were appointed in Autumn 2015 - teachers, heads and others with relevant expertise. Since then, we have been granted a Royal Charter to establish the Chartered College of Teaching, secured £5m start-up funding from the Department for Education and are in the process of appointing an inaugural Chief Executive to lead the organisation.
We now seeking to appoint up to eight classroom teachers to join the existing Trustees during the Autumn Term 2016. These teachers will be involved in leading and governing the organisation at a crucial time as we open membership to teachers and schools across the country.
This role is a voluntary one involving up to 20 days a year. We will pay travel and subsistence expenses. Meetings and events are normally held at weekends or evenings but we will meet cover costs where required.
