Group Membership


Investment in group membership is an investment in your students, your staff, your organisation and the wider profession. Together we can raise the status of the teaching profession.

“Chartered College group membership has inspired and motivated teachers to develop their practice and share this with colleagues both inside and outside of their schools.”

Laura Yandell FCCT, Principal Deputy Head (Curricular), Harrow International School Hong Kong

In an ever-changing educational landscape, we’re committed to providing accredited, rigorous and accessible CPD and resources – and to equipping staff with the tools to engage in research to drive sustainable school improvement.

By investing in group membership, you will:

• Underline your commitment to an evidence-informed culture and supportive professional environment, which drives greater teacher effectiveness

• Become recognised as an employer of choice through offering professional accreditation and career development for staff

• Gain access to an international network of teachers and school leaders

• Open up powerful opportunities for collaborative, whole-school CPD and research engagement

• Save money through a cost-effective, sustainable professional development offer, easily aligned to your priorities

 Attract, develop and retain staff, sending a powerful signal of the value you place in development and professionalism.

“Group membership with the Chartered College offers learning as a wider trust team which builds our collective wisdom and helps us develop a shared language to drive school improvement. It’s incredibly powerful.” 

Nicki Antwis, Executive Director of Learning, Diocese of Bristol Academies Trust

Research shows:

• Having effective teachers is the most important in-school factor for student achievement (Slater et al., 2012; Kane et al., 2013)

• Numerous studies have shown that continuing professional development (CPD), which provides opportunities for collaboration and critical reflection, can positively impact teacher effectiveness and student learning (Fletcher-Wood & Zuccollo, 2020; Kennedy, 2016; Sims et al., 2021)

• Teachers working in supportive professional environments develop further than their peers (Kraft & Papay, 2014)

The Chartered College of Teaching is your professional body for teaching, a not-for-profit charity independent of government, and a “trusted broker of evidence” (EEF, 2021) on what makes teaching and leadership most effective.

Group membership will unlock the following features for staff:

• Award-winning publications, online courses, bitesize CPD packs and guides to engage with the latest research
• Gateway to Chartered Status accreditation for teachers and leaders
• Awarded letters MCCT after their name to recognise your professional status
