Fitness to Teach rules

Closing date:
External body:

On 29 September 2016, we published a consultation on proposed new Fitness to Teach rules to replace our existing Fitness to Teach and Appeals rules which were put in place in 2012.

The Fitness to Teach rules set out the procedure that is followed when we investigate and determine the fitness to teach of our registrants or applicants for registration. We follow this process when we receive information that indicates that a teacher may have fallen short of the standards of conduct of professional competence that we expect.
