DfE Press release on Master Teacher Standards
Second Report of the Independent Review of Teachers' Standards
If the Master Teacher Standard is accepted and widely promoted by Gove, this could be very helpful for subject associations in promoting professional development. So far the signs of approval (see press release) are good.
It is heartening to see that the CfSA response to the consultation is widely quoted in the Review’s report and many of our recommendations have been followed. Unfortunately our later suggestion, that engagement with a subject association should feature in the standards, was not taken forward. However, the text in the master standard descriptor gives us a starting point for continuing to push for this in the future.
