Chartered College of Teaching
The Chartered College of Teaching is the professional body for teaching in England. Since launching in 2017, it has been working to connect, inform and inspire teachers to take pride in their profession and deliver the best possible education for young people. It is bridging the gap between the profession and pedagogy and removing the barriers to professional knowledge. The Chartered College is focused on supporting teachers to work in an research informed manner built on the notion of collegiality.
With its members working in schools across England in a range of settings the Chartered College is in a strong position to support teachers from the second they step into the classroom right through to leadership and beyond.
The organisation provides a range of tools to support teachers at the different stages of their career. Student teachers can benefit from free membership, a specialist journal - The Profession - filled with guidance and tailored events for them to discuss their issues. Every term members receive an issue of the Chartered College’s award-winning journal Impact, can engage with research and insight with its home for teaching, My College, and meet with teachers at one of the Chartered College’s networks around the country. At the other end of the scale, the Chartered College is supporting experienced teachers and leaders through its Fellowship membership and a Leadership Development Group focused on providing senior leaders with opportunity to engage with evidence and CPD to benefit their colleagues and the wider profession.
Raising the status of the profession is an important part of the Chartered College’s work. Its Chartered Teacher programme is focused on developing the understanding and knowledge of effective research engagement. Teachers who successfully achieve Chartered Teacher status are recognised for their excellent teaching.
The Chartered College of Teaching is a once in a lifetime opportunity to benefit the teaching profession. Every day teachers are changing the lives of their pupils. The Chartered College celebrates teachers and through its work will create a culture of lifelong learning, support and celebration across the sector.
