Commenting on the publication of the report by the Independent Panel on Career Pathways for Teachers, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, said:
“The NASUWT, as a member of the Panel, has raised consistently the need for a culture change in schools around how teachers progress and advance their careers.
“The Union welcomes the positive and progressive recommendations contained in the Report, which if implemented fully across all schools, would go a long way to achieving this much needed change in culture.
“Technological and societal change, as well as competition in recruitment from other sectors, must be recognised and addressed to attract and retain skilled teachers.
“Teachers need a wider range of pathways through which they can develop their careers, pathways which offer greater flexibility, enabling them to make the most of their skills, abilities and interests.
“All of this must be underpinned by a statutory entitlement to high-quality, career-long professional development for every teacher and school leader and pay structures which reflect the highly skilled professional and pedagogic demands of the job.
“It will now be key that the SNCT works to turn these recommendations into reality, for the benefit not only of the teaching profession, but also for children and young people who are entitled to be taught by highly skilled and trained teachers.”
