Expert teachers are a global phenomenon, but England has no form of recognition. So are ‘Lead Practitioners’ as good as it gets?

7 July | 2:15 pm - 3:00 pm

What is the concept of the ‘Expert Teacher’ from both a global and national perspective? We had the success of The Advanced Skills Teacher in England and the failure of The Chartered Teacher in Scotland; now we have the Chartered Teacher from the Chartered College of Teaching. However, the ‘unofficial Lead Practitioner’ is now the designation of choice, is it any good? The key question remains how we recruit and retain the best teachers in classrooms and provide them with status and a career structure, something several other high performing jurisdictions e.g. Singapore, USA and Australia are currently developing successfully.
