From education to employment

Teacher misconduct: regulating the teaching profession

Open consultation

We continually look to improve our policies, processes and procedures in relation to the teacher misconduct arrangements.

This consultation sets out a number of proposals to broaden the scope of the teacher misconduct provisions to include:

persons who commit misconduct when not employed as a teacher but who have previously carried out teaching work
a wider range of education settings
enabling the Secretary of State to consider referrals of serious teacher misconduct regardless of how the matter comes to their attention

We would like to hear your views on our proposals.
