WHAT IS THE GOVERNMENTS POSITION ON THE ROYAL COLLEGE OF TEACHING?

 

Supportive but at arm’s length

Comment

This is the government’s position on the Royal College of Teaching:

‘A successful professional body for teaching, established and owned by the teachers themselves, could play an important role in raising the standard and status of teaching. Key to the success of any such body would be its independence from government. We have been following with interest initiatives that have begun to take root in the education sector, including those under the aegis of the Prince’s Teaching Institute, and we look forward to seeing their proposal when it is published in the new year.’

David Laws-Commons PQ 6 January
