Our Programmes

We offer a variety of professional learning opportunities to educators through our programmes. These programmes combine research evidence and classroom practice to provide high-quality insight and learning opportunities. Many of these opportunities are delivered in collaboration with other education organisations; combining our various areas of expertise helps us to deliver the best possible learning to the profession.

There are two routes to achieve Chartered Teacher Status through the Chartered College of Teaching – one for those focusing on their classroom practice, and one for school leaders.

SCIENCE JOURNAL CLUBS

The Chartered College of Teaching is launching a new project to look at how journal clubs can be adapted from healthcare for education. The project, funded by Wellcome Trust, will support teachers to discuss research, learn how to critically engage with research literature and connect with colleagues from across the UK to find out how the findings apply to their setting.

Participation in the project includes free online membership of the Chartered College of Teaching and is open to primary and secondary school teachers of science. No previous knowledge or experience with journal clubs or research methods and designs is needed.

CPD QA

Quality Assurance of Teacher’ Continuing Professional Development

STATUS: CLOSED

In 2018, the Wellcome Trust and Education Endowment Foundation commissioned Phase One of a project to explore the potential development of a quality assurance system for teachers’ Continuing Professional Development (CPD). The project was delivered by a consortium of the Chartered College of Teaching, the Teacher Development Trust and Sheffield Institute of Education, part of Sheffield Hallam University. The intention was to design, develop and research existing quality assurance systems and to test the potential for widespread, sustainable engagement in such a system.


In 2020, the Wellcome Trust commissioned Phase Two of the project, which will see a quality assurance system developed and tested with a small number of CPD providers. Their provision will be reviewed by a panel of stakeholders, including teachers, against set Quality Assurance criteria and recognition will be given to provision which meets these.


The rationale for this work is well-established: to support teachers and school leaders in making informed choices about CPD which is more likely to lead to improved pupil outcomes.
