Didsbury High School is delighted to have been selected by the Chartered College of Teaching as one of 11 providers to support the delivery of its Chartered Teacher Programme (CTeach).

The school will play an important role in supporting teachers to achieve Chartered Teacher Status with the launch of the next cohort in April.

Applications were open to a range of different providers including schools, multi-academy trusts, teaching schools and higher education institutions.

As part of the pilot approach, all providers will ensure that teachers taking part are supported by excellent training opportunities and highly-skilled mentors. The Chartered College of Teaching, which is the professional body for teachers, will set the programme assessment and oversee all assessment processes.

Cat Scutt, Director of Education and Research at the Chartered College of Teaching, said: “Moving to this new approach for the delivery of our Chartered Teacher programme is a really exciting step for the Chartered College of Teaching. Our pilot providers all have extensive experience in delivering high-quality teacher CPD. We are looking forward to working with them and making use of their local expertise to offer tailored support and development opportunities. This will help to ensure more teachers can have their expertise and skills recognised through CTeach status.”

The Chartered Teacher Programme recognises an individual’s excellent knowledge and practice as a teacher along with a commitment to professional growth. The first 98 teachers to be awarded Chartered Teacher status graduated last July. Anyone looking to join the next cohort should visit chartered.college/chartered-teacher.
