Become a Learning Partner 

From September 2021, teachers and school leaders will no longer need to be enrolled on a full programme run by the Chartered College of Teaching in order to work towards Chartered Status. Teachers will be able to gain credits and work towards Chartered Status more flexibly over time, including alongside or as part of other professional development or qualifications they may already be undertaking. 

The Chartered College of Teaching is looking for Learning Partners (schools, MATs, Teaching School Hubs and CPD providers) who are interested in supporting teachers and school leaders on their journey to Chartered Status. This might be through aligning or adapting existing CPD programmes to Chartered Status requirements, or through new programmes.
