Teachers can help to shape the future membership of the College of Teaching by taking part in a “Big Staff Meeting”.

The initiative asks teachers to put aside half an hour to help consult on key college membership questions that will be determined on January 6.

Following the meeting, teachers will be asked to take part in a national consultation by responding to questions online that will seek their views on the membership, and can reply any time in the run-up to February half-term.

Claire Dockar, a teacher at Lipson Co-operative Academy in Plymouth and founding trustee of the college, said: “The college must be owned by its future members to be truly independent and to contribute significantly to the professional autonomy of teachers.

“By taking just half an hour out of a school day, teachers can have their say and play a key role in changing the future direction of the profession.”
