Hearings schedule and decisions

Our Fitness to Teach Publication Policy sets out how we communicate information about our fitness to teach cases to the public.

You can view our scheduled Fitness to Teach Hearings up to 7 days in advance by clicking on highlighted dates on the Hearings calendar. Please note that you will find the hearing day start time but not timings for individual cases as this varies according to events on the day.

Our Fitness to Teach hearing decisions and any consent orders (which are issued without the need for a hearing) are published below.
