    Dame__Alison__Peacock New commenter TES Leadership Panel Expert

    We have been pleased with the groundswell of support for the Chartered College in recent weeks and months. We have several thousand members already. Over 600 teachers joined us over half term at national conferences and I have been travelling the country with Chartered College colleagues to meet teachers from Portsmouth to York. We are due to visit Newcastle this Thursday evening.

    Has this met your expectations?
     
  8. Dame__Alison__Peacock

    Dame__Alison__Peacock New commenter TES Leadership Panel Expert

    The response has exceeded my expectations but we have a long long way to go. From comments on this week's #SLTChat it is clear that we still need to articulate our vision more clearly. I hope that this conversation will provide an opportunity for this.

    Ambitions for this new professional body are huge. There is interest in how the Chartered College can establish a respected authoritative presence that ultimately liberates teachers through enhanced professional knowledge and expertise.

    In your view, what makes a good teacher?
     
  14. Dame__Alison__Peacock

    Dame__Alison__Peacock New commenter TES Leadership Panel Expert

    Teachers who know their subject / phase and are dedicated to imparting knowledge and expertise to children and young people have the capacity to change lives for the better. We are committed to working in partnership with subject associations, learned societies and others to develop a modular Chartered Teaching scholarship route.

    How can school leaders support their teachers to become as good as they can be?
     
  16. Dame__Alison__Peacock

    Dame__Alison__Peacock New commenter TES Leadership Panel Expert

    There is so much about school / college culture that makes a difference to teachers' capacity to achieve excellent outcomes. I believe teachers should be valued as professionals, trusted to plan teach and assess in the best way possible for their classes. Access to high quality professional learning opportunities is key. Many of the teachers we have heard from since the Chartered College began work are concerned about the quality of CPD opportunities available to them. We want to move beyond a culture of compliance where staff meetings tend to focus on preparation for inspection for example, to one of collaboration and sharing approaches that have impact on learning. Lesson Study as opposed to lesson observation / monitoring is an example of this. The new digital platform that we are building will provide high quality examples of pedagogy informed by research.
     
  17. AndrewFIS

    AndrewFIS Occasional commenter TES Leadership Expert

    Will you be producing your own evidence-based research on teaching methods or will you steer your members towards latest thinking produced elsewhere?
     
  18. Dame__Alison__Peacock

    Dame__Alison__Peacock New commenter TES Leadership Panel Expert

    The role of the Chartered College will be to inform the profession about existing and emerging evidence about pedagogy. We aim to work closely with the EEF, Research Schools, HEIs and Subject Associations.
     
  19. AndrewFIS

    AndrewFIS Occasional commenter TES Leadership Expert

    Will you filter what research is highlighted ie would research carried out by think-tank with a known political bias be presented uncritically?
     
  20. Dame__Alison__Peacock

    Dame__Alison__Peacock New commenter TES Leadership Panel Expert

    Our Director of Research, Cat Scutt, will ensure that we present balanced authoritative research outcomes ideally through a synthesis of evidence. One report may generate interesting debate but can only provide a partial view.
