I honestly thought that this ‘by teachers for teachers’ organisation had slipped away into obscurity, but apparently it still exists. Sadly though, it is not the ‘by teachers for teachers’ organisation we were all repeatedly promised. Nearly all of its elected are headteachers, other assorted SLT, Governors and business executives - hardly a teacher to be found. This is rapidly turning into a mouthpiece for management and business interests, with all the cronyism, bias and self-interest that involves. ‘By teachers for teachers’? ‘Promoting the interests of teachers’? ‘Teacher-led’? All those choice phrases continuously rolled out when this so-called college was being set-up to try to convince us to join it and support it despite our reservations have come to nothing. It is now about as far from a ‘by teachers for teachers’ organisation as you can get.
