2: Benefits of the Chartered Teacher programme
Benefits to the participant
The Chartered Teacher programme aims to support teachers’ personal, professional and career development, and acknowledges and celebrates the fantastic work that happens in classrooms across the country every day. Those achieving Chartered Teacher Status will be recognised for evidence-informed, high quality teaching practice, benefiting the young people they teach. Participation in the programme will also support teachers’ understanding and knowledge of effective evaluation, professional development, education policy, and research-engagement.
Benefits to the school
Successful completion of the programme and the assessments required to achieve Chartered Teacher Status demonstrates not just a teachers’ excellent knowledge, practice, but also professional behaviours that mean they have an impact beyond their own classroom. Chartered Teachers are committed to supporting the development of other teachers, sharing their expertise and contributing to a culture of learning and research-engagement within a school.
Benefits to the profession
Chartered Teacher Status will help to raise the status of teachers and the important role they play, bringing teaching in line with other professions. The Chartered Teacher programme also represents a step in a move towards developing career pathways focused on excellent teaching, rather than leadership, and has a critical role to play in supporting teacher recruitment and retention.
