A World-Class Teaching Profession. Consultation Response
National Foundation for Educational Research
Between 9 December 2014 and 2 February 2015 the Government conducted a consultation into its vision for a world-class teaching profession and the establishment of a College of Teaching. The Government is committed to improving teacher quality as a key part of our plan for education. The teaching profession is fortunate to include many thousands of dedicated, hard-working individuals transforming the lives of children and young people while working to improve their own professional practice. We want to help teachers to go even further in raising the standards of their profession, and so we are seeking views on: (1) Improving the quality of professional development and learning undertaken by all teacher; and (2) Facilitating the establishment of a new independent professional body for teaching (a "College of Teaching"). This document details NFER's response to this consultation. Our response should be read in the context of our support for the "Claim Your College Campaign" to which we are one of a number of signatories. [Details regarding "Claim Your College Campaign" are available at NFER.]
