Acknowledging Teacher Professionalism in Ireland: The Case for a Chartered Teacher Initiative
Lynch, Raymond; Hennessy, Jennifer; Gleeson, Jim
Irish Educational Studies, v32 n4 p493-510 2013
This paper presents an argument for the development of an Irish Chartered Teacher initiative which would acknowledge and accredit the professionalism of experienced and accomplished teachers. It begins by examining the current position of teaching as a profession based on findings from Irish and international research studies. Issues surrounding the accreditation of accomplished teachers are considered through the examination of a range of Chartered Teacher initiatives. Finally, the potential opportunities and challenges of accrediting teacher professionalism in Ireland are discussed with reference to the continuum of teacher education and recent developments introduced by the Teaching Council of Ireland.
