Detail

The Secretary of State for Education launched the ‘Independent review of teachers’ standards’, chaired by Sally Coates, in March 2011.

The review brought together leading teachers, headteachers and other experts to review the framework of professional standards for teachers.

These reports present their findings and recommendations.

The first report looks at the standards for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and the core professional standards.

The second report looks at the upper tiers of the standards framework (‘post-threshold’, ‘excellent teacher’ and ‘advanced skills teacher’).
