What would a College of Teaching mean for you?

A proposal for the start-up of a new College of Teaching has been published by a coalition of organisations. What is it all about and why is it so important that you and your staff start thinking about it now? Claire Dockar explains

There is a rumbling, a voice that needs to be heard, a clamour for an opportunity to be taken. There is a vision, one that becomes clearer day after day; an image of pride and of professionalism, of exacting standards.

There is a desire to be recognised, to be respected, to excel. What is happening in the world of education that could engender such emotions?

Last month, the Claim Your College coalition unveiled its detailed plan for the start-up and mobilisation of a new College of Teaching. The new College will be committed to improving the education of children and young people by supporting teachers' development and recognising excellence in teaching.
