WEST LAKES TEACHING SCHOOL SELECTED TO DELIVER PRESTIGIOUS TEACHER PROGRAMME IN THE NORTH
- West Lakes Teaching School will support the delivery of Chartered College of Teaching’s Chartered Teacher Programme
- Programme celebrates excellent teaching and awards teachers with Chartered Status
West Lakes Teaching School has been announced as one of only 11 providers to support the delivery of the Chartered Teacher Programme. The Programme, led by the Chartered College of Teaching, the professional body for teaching, celebrates the excellent teaching and practice occurring in classrooms every single day.
As a provider, West Lakes Teaching School will play a crucial role in working with teachers across the North to achieve Chartered Teacher Status with the launch of the next cohort in April. This includes supporting teachers with training opportunities and highly-skilled mentors.
Abby Deeks, Director of West Lakes Teaching Schools, said: “We are delighted to be working with the Chartered College of Teaching to bring the prestigious Chartered Teacher Programme to the North. This is a fantastic opportunity for staff from across our region to access high quality CPD locally. We can’t wait to meet our first cohort of teachers.”
Cat Scutt, Director of Education and Research at the Chartered College of Teaching, said: “Moving to this new approach for the delivery of our Chartered Teacher programme is a really exciting step for the Chartered College of Teaching. Our pilot providers all have extensive experience in delivering high-quality teacher CPD. We are looking forward to working with them and making use of their local expertise to offer tailored support and development opportunities. This will help to ensure more teachers can have their expertise and skills recognised through CTeach status.”
The prestigious Chartered Teacher Programme recognises an individual’s excellent knowledge and practice as a teacher along with a commitment to professional growth. The first 98 teachers in the country to be awarded Chartered Teacher status graduated last July. For more information http://www.westlakestsa.org.uk/chartered-teacher-programme/
