Professional Inspector or Inspecting Professional? Teachers as Inspectors in a New Regulatory Regime for Education in England
Baxter, Jacqueline Aundrée
Cambridge Journal of Education, v43 n4 p467-485 2013
The advent of a new inspection system in January 2012 has created new challenges for both the teaching profession and for the inspectors of education given the task of implementing it, as the new framework demands increased involvement by serving teachers and head teachers as part of the inspection process. This paper draws on evidence from a current funded research project to examine the implications of engaging current practitioners in the inspection role. It explores the professional values and skills that are required in order to successfully effect the new framework and considers whether these may conflict with professional teaching identities, thus raising the possibility of further tensions in the inspection--and governance--of education in England.
