Expert teachers are a global phenomenon, what about the UK?


This presentation reports on a body of research that has examined the concept of the ‘Expert Teacher’ from both a global and national perspective. There will be a review of the success of The Advanced Skills Teacher and the Chartered Teacher in Scotland, followed by an examination and evaluation of the new Chartered Teacher pilot scheme and its potential. The key question is 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.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
