Striking Off Teachers

STRIKING OFF TEACHERS

New rules will allow teachers to be struck off if they’re found guilty of serious misconduct.

Under the Fitness to Teach system anyone can report a case to the Teaching Council.

Complaints found to be serious enough will be referred on to a disciplinary committee.

The new system – which comes into force today – will make it easier for parents, students and other teachers – to lodge complaints about teachers.
