The DfE has launched a consultation on Strengthening Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and Improving Career Progression.
This consultation explores how teachers can be supported at the early stages of their careers by strengthening QTS. This consultation also explores proposals on how all teachers can be supported throughout their careers, whether they are expert classroom teachers, school leaders or specialists in their field. Support may be through continuing professional development, mentoring or sabbaticals.
For further information, including a link to the consultation and survey, please visit strengthening qualified teacher status (QTS) and improving career progression for teachers.
