How we can support teacher career progression is the subject of much debate, and has important implications for the development of individual teachers and the retention of the teaching workforce. There are many barriers to career progression that teachers may face, as well as positive actions that can be taken to address them, in terms of individual behaviours, leadership practices and institutional cultures.
In this recorded panel discussion chaired by Dame Alison Peacock (Chief Executive, Chartered College of Teaching), we explored some of the key issues around career progression in schools and how we might pave the way for our leaders of tomorrow in the #FutureOfTeaching
Joining the discussion were Vivienne Porritt FCCT (Global Strategic Leader, #WomenEd and Vice President, Chartered College of Teaching), Graham Chisnell FCCT (CEO, Veritas Multi Academy Trust), and Sufian Sadiq FCCT (Director of Teaching School, Chiltern Learning Trust and Council Member, Chartered College of Teaching), who have contributed to our upcoming issue 11 of Impact.
This event discusses the following questions:
- How can we better support colleagues from minority ethnic backgrounds to progress?
- How do we build a culture for career development in schools?
- What can we do to better support women into leadership?
- How can we aid the retention of the teaching workforce through supporting career progression in our schools?
