Teachers’ Standards

Teaching Agency Teachers’ Standards

The independent Review of Teachers’ Standards, chaired by Sally Coates, was launched by the Secretary of State for Education in March 2011. The Review brought together leading teachers, headteachers and other experts to review the existing framework of professional standards for teachers.

Ministers accepted the Review’s recommendations and a new set of standards, which will set the minimum requirements for teachers’ practice and conduct, become effective from the 1 September 2012.

The new Standards published by the Secretary of State for Education introduce some significant changes in terms of structure, content and application. The Teachers’ Standards contained in this document replace the existing standards for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and the Core professional standards, previously published by the Training and Development Agency for Schools (TDA).

Schools and teachers are expected to view the Standards in the light of their own professional judgement, considering how they may be applied in the teaching of mathematics.

Three information sheets to help schools implement the new teachers' standards in September have been produced by the Department for Education. They explain what the standards are and how they should be used.

The previous TDA Professional Standards, exemplified for mathematics are still available as an archived page.
