Teachers sought as trustees for College of Teaching

The TES is reporting that up to eight classroom teachers are being sought to help shape the direction of the new College of Teaching.

The body is looking for trustees who are currently working as teachers, have up-to-date knowledge of the education sector and have experience in fields such as evidence-based practice or sharing best practice between schools.

The College of Teaching is launching in the autumn as a new chartered body for the profession. It will be led by teachers and will be independent of the government.

It aims to give members access to high-quality evidence, including a new peer-reviewed journal and will set up regional networks and run national events to debate evidence-informed practice.

There are already 13 founding trustees, who were appointed in autumn 2015. And last month, the college advertised for a chief executive.

    I got through to the final interview of the founding trustee positions and said I would be contacted about future roles…..I have not been contacted about this yet!

    The teaching unions could amalgamate and supplant this government-imposed body. That way the profession might have ownership of it.

    Can teachers who are obliged to work in schools through agencies take part in order to provide a perspective on the growing casualisation of the education workforce.
