“We are at a crucial moment in the history of the teaching profession, ready to come together to do ever more for the young people in our classrooms. The Claim Your College coalition has received extraordinary interest from the great majority of teachers consulted alongside unions, subject associations, universities, school improvement organisations, third sector organisations and others across the education sector. It is essential that teachers are at the heart of the College of Teaching. It must be designed, driven and run by teachers and it will only be effective if it is relevant, high-status and provides true professional progression for teachers. By working together as a profession, through this College, we can help every teacher to be continually better at helping the next generation.”You can read the full proposal, the press release and the growing list of supporters at http://ClaimYourCollege.org The Trust will also be submitting and publishing our response to the rest of the World Class Teachers consultation paper as well as a separate response on behalf of the CPD providers we work with on our GoodCPDGuide.com database.
