New professional standards for teaching and leadership in Wales

24 Jul

By Elizabeth Williams, Senior Professional Officer (Wales)

The Welsh Government will soon be implementing new standards for teachers. Available from September 2017, they will be mandatory from September 2018.

The proposed standards are excellent in many respects, but Voice’s view is that there are too many elements and that they are excessively prescriptive. We also have concerns that these standards could be used against teachers in capability and performance management exercises.

I expressed these concerns in Voice’s consultation response, and Professional Officer John Till and I will be meeting with Welsh Government officials. I’ll keep you posted.

From August 2017, Your Voice.
