Chartered Teacher Status Update24th November 2020
SWTSA is leading on behalf of TSSW on the roll out of the Provider Led Chartered Teacher Programme. Chartered Teacher Status recognises the knowledge, skills and behaviours of excellent teachers, highlights the importance of their expertise in supporting the learning of children and young people and represents the first step in the development of a career pathway focused on effective classroom practice, not leadership. This status brings teaching in line with other professions, where recognition of expertise and expectation of career-long professional learning are well-established.
The participants on the programme are supported by a number of experienced mentors and assessors who are currently working within schools in Devon and Plymouth. Recruitment commenced in January 2020 and our first cohort, a mix of primary and secondary teachers, will complete the programme in September 2021.
