Royal College of Teaching proposed

shutterstock_121159219Proposals for the creation of a Royal College of Teaching have been made to provide teachers in England with an independent professional voice for those in the teaching profession. AQA have sponsored a series of research essays entitled Towards A Royal College of Teaching looking at how a professional body, modelled on medical royal colleges, would work.

Education secretary Michael Gove voiced his support for the creation of a royal college at the National College for Teaching and Leadership in Nottingham in April. Gove said: ‘There is a growing consensus that teachers should emulate other professions and set up a new Royal College – like the Royal College of Surgeons or Paediatricians – identifying, exemplifying and defining best practice in the teaching profession.’
