This is an important topic in a fast-changing educational world that faces many challenges for teachers and students. It has its roots in the 19th century, when schoolteachers strove to achieve a professional status alongside doctors and lawyers, and attempts were made during the latter half of the last century to revive the idea. But what exactly does a ‘professional’ teacher look like now in the 21st century, and what might they look like in fifty years?

Our panel:
Dame Professor Alison Peacock DBE (CEO, Chartered College of Teaching)
Dr Kate Chhatwal OBE (CEO, Challenge Partners)
Emma Balchin (Co-CEO, National Governance Association)
Gráinne Hallahan (Head of Community, Teacher Tapp, former TES Analyst)
The panel, chaired by the Master Educator, will discuss the nature of professionalism in education and the challenges and opportunities of recent and future educational policy.

This event is in partnership between the Worshipful Company of Educators and the Chartered College of Teaching.
