Be recognised with Institutional Member Status


Institutional Member Status is an institution-level designation, which recognises and celebrates the growing number of schools, trusts and organisations who commit to professional learning and evidence-informed practice through the Chartered College of Teaching for all or the majority of their staff.


Institutional Members receive a specially designed logo to recognize their status and commitment to:


 Supporting the Chartered College’s mission to empower a knowledgeable and respected profession through membership and accreditation

 Appointing one or more Chartered College of Teaching Research Champion(s)

 Supporting group membership for at least 75% of teaching staff, or over 100 staff (whichever is lower)

“I am delighted that the Trust have been awarded Institutional Member Status, which ecognizes the strength of the partnership between the Chartered College of Teaching and Brooke Weston Trust. The Chartered College of Teaching has helped us to weave engagement with education research into day-to-day school life and create a culture where teachers use research to help them reflect on their teaching. Institutional Member Status will help us to continue to develop this culture.”

Dr Rachel Lawrence-Byron, Director of Professional Development at Brooke Weston Trust
