News and Support from The NASUWT
The Department for Education (DfE) has confirmed that it is to give public funding to support the establishment of a College of Teaching. It has also confirmed its preference for the proposals published by the Claim Your College Coalition.
These proposals can be viewed at the College of Teaching website(opens in new window).
The NASUWT has never objected in principle to the creation of a College of Teaching and the Union has sought to engage with the ongoing national debate on this issue. However, the only model being considered is that published by the Claim Your College Coalition.
There are legitimate grounds for concern about these proposals. These concerns are set out in an NASUWT briefing available here (opens in new window).
The Union has also set out the key principles on which it believes that an effective College of Teaching should be based in its response to the DfE’s consultation on a world-class teaching profession.
