Our first 20th Anniversary celebration with Dame Alison Peacock, CEO of Chartered College on Tuesday 1st October.
We were delighted to welcome Dame Alison Peacock to our first celebration event in Norwich on Tuesday 1st October who delivered a keynote to our guests about the work of the Chartered College of Teaching and what it can offer to trainee teachers, early career teachers and experienced teachers.
One of the key aims of the Chartered College is to give a voice to the teaching profession so the status of teaching can be raised. To build a collegiality of voices that bring teachers together and to respect the plurality of voices which exist in the profession.
The Chartered College wishes for teachers to become more informed about their practice so they can be more confident about what they know and why they are doing what they are doing in their classroom every day. The Chartered College wants teachers to have the knowledge to stop doing meaningless tasks and be able to focus on what is really important. Dame Alison Peacock said 'that it is time to do less of things that don’t have any impact as it is time that the profession became more fluent in theory than in forms of practice.'
Dame Alison Peacock told our audience that we need to hear more about 'hope in the teaching profession' and her message is summarised in this video ‘Hope is Power'.
We were very grateful that Dame Alison was able to attend our birthday celebration and if you want to know more about the work of the Chartered College then please click here.https://chartered.college/
